La vejez de Narciso

"The vejez Narciso," a series of Agatatipies, a collection of portraits of black agate using the same process as the collodion. Portraits melt on black stones that speak of absence and essence. This work is inspired by a poem with the same title, Enrique Lihn:

I look in the mirror and I do not see my face.
I look in the mirror and I do not see my face.
I have disappeared: the mirror is my face.
I have disappeared;
Because from so much self-reflection in this broken mirror
I have lost the sense of my face
or, as I tell it, I have become infinite
or the nothing that in it, as in all things,
has hidden, hides,
the nothing that is in all as the sun in the night
and I am my own absence in front of a broken mirror.
