HUÉSPED
DIEGO MORENO

ABOUT THIS BOOK

Claudia Hans develops this book from the formal and conceptual intervention of the book "Songs for my Grandmother" written in 1945, the year in which the Second World War ended. This book consists of a series of illustrations and verses that narrate the childhood and past of the author's grandmother Agnes Louise Dean. Silent Songs is Claudia's intervention of these texts and illustrations, transforming the book into a contemporary piece where she simultaneously narrates part of her own grandmother's life, what happened during the Holocaust and the current issues that tell the story of thousands of people. 
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 to reflect more deeply on the fragility and complexity of the human condition, and the hostile time we inhabit. 

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 web of relationships, at the same time as they are transformed in the photographic act itself. From the time of the Spanish Conquest, 

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