ABOUT THIS BOOK

A story that narrates a family conflict that led to an escape to a place where silence and contemplation reign. It was an act of love that caused fracture and displacement, as in a glacier, and to this day the fragments of what seemed so solid continue to separate. Thus THE EYE OF THE GLACIER is an invitation to look. 

Luis David Brito uses photography as a means of constructing a map of a complex family constellation, where roles have been disrupted, altering the author's place in the world. The photograph, as a metaphor for the visible, for the bonds that unite his family, is deconstructed and reconstructed in the process of the author's transformation. The mountain, the glacier, become the space of the narrative of the author's encounter with himself in the landscape. The book is the intervention of life through the intervention of photography and materials, resulting in an object of extraordinary workmanship by Brito. The process of materialisation of the book is in itself a symbolic act of transformation of the author. 
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.
