Among a team of baseball players, Amiris was one of the few girls that participated in the photography class. This was the first time she had ever used a camera, and she truly excelled as a photographer. Her photography focused on everyday sights, such as caged birds and the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. Her documentary style emphasized the reality and feel of the world around her. She captured the concept of photojournalism and successfully shares the story of herself and her city.
