Collection of short stories from Spain.
57 imagesI am taking self-portraits continuously and in an obsessive way. But my ego, my existence goes beyond my appearance or my thought. I exist in relation to the "Other", thanks to which I am the one who I am. Through the "Other" I see myself. My union with the "Other" is not always the same; the "Other" also is the different one. So I try to shorten the differences, I look for that one "Other" that is nearer to me. That one with I share race, religion and culture, that one that is defined in the same way that I am, my people. Nevertheless If I photographed my close people, my relatives, they would prevent me to see myself clearly. Since my prejudices and my knowledge of their realities would be a heavy slab. Because of this I photograph persons whom I do not know and with whom I do not exchange a single word. But those that in spite of this I feel like analogous. That is how I decided photograph my hometown and mainly his people.
35 imagesIn 2006 the 5th World Meeting of Families took place in Valencia. For a few days Catholic families, associations and dioceses in different parts of the world gathered together around the Pope. That year was approved gay marriage in Spain so the choice of location was not a coincidence.
