ABOUT THIS BOOK

Between text and image, this photobook constructs the complex story of three generations of women in the author's life. The mother's house, full of pets, dolls and peculiar objects, becomes a space both fantastical and terrible, a metaphor for an intricate and dramatic story that Saraí approaches oscillating between fiction and reality, in an honest and profound reflection in words and images. Where You Can't See Me is the construction of a refuge of fantasy, and although I play with fantasy, the space is not fictional, it is our family history inhabiting this book". 

Between intervened archive images, photographs taken by the author, texts, and a delicate workmanship that includes several different booklets, the narrative of Donde no puedas verme is constructed, materialised in a fascinating object that hides and reveals disturbing secrets.Intervened archive images, photographs taken by the author, texts, and a delicate workmanship, this photobook constructs the complex story of three generations of women in the author's life.

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.
