Al oeste está el sol


Is there not in every family history a territorial struggle? Underneath what seems arid and deserted there is a world, underneath what seems arid and deserted there is the fragility that keeps us open, but also isolates us from the world. This work addresses the questions that arise about family ties, distance and emotional closeness. I follow family life and its daily threads as they intertwine with illness and create a universe of images of their own.
