ABOUT THIS BOOK

To access and dialogue with the mystery that dwells within and outside of us, the key is OFFERING. 

This book was born out of a system of practices that has its origins in the native peoples of Mexico, and which have been systematised by "The Art of Living on Purpose". These practices have at the core of their worldview the relationship with the powers of nature and their aim is to navigate the unknown and the possibilities unexplored by human beings, who are limited by their personal history. 

 It is the practices of recapitulation, the burial of the warrior, confession and offering on which "OFRENDA" is built, an offering is a NIERIKA of the awakening of memory, to close and open cycles under the shelter of fire and the powers of nature. Photographer Luis Enrique Aguilar integrates photography into his personal practice to make his own offering, while inviting the viewer to ask questions and explore the idea of making his own practices in search of his other self. 
Through images and texts Diego Moreno narrates the complexity of his family history, one that is marked by disturbing cycles of domestic violence, machismo and attachment to the Catholic religion. This photobook, in the form of a family album, allows the author to construct a present to find his place in the world and reflect more deeply on the fragility and complexity of the human condition, and the hostile time in which we live. 

Huésped has been developed over six years, during which Diego has explored his own identity through an intense process of immersion in photography as a means of connecting with his family universe, creating and recreating scenes that allow us to enter into this complex fabric of relationships, while they are transformed into the same photographic act. Since the times of the Spanish Conquest, 

Chiapas has been a state of Mexico where diverse cultures coexist, where cultural and social contrasts are in constant tension. Mexico's border with Latin America, passage of undocumented immigrants, scene of the Zapatista struggle, place inhabited by indigenous peoples who keep alive the pre-Hispanic customs, the so-called "coletos" descendants of the Spanish, mestizos and foreigners, build an extremely complex social mosaic.
