This photobook and exhibition, in the form of a family album, allow the author to construct a present to find his place in the world and to reflect deeply on the fragility and complexity of the human condition, and the hostile time in which we live. 

Through images and texts Diego Moreno narrates the complexity of his family history marked by disturbing cycles of domestic violence, machismo and attachment to the Catholic religion.Huésped has been developed over the last seven years, during which Diego has explored his own identity through an intense process of immersion in photography as a means to connect with his family universe, creating and recreating scenes that allow us to enter into this complex web of relationships, while at the same time transforming the photographic act itself.
The common thread of the project, and of the author's life, is the deep complicity and affection in the relationship with his grandmother Mama Cleme, an endearing and surprising character who participates in the photos of this project. 
The book Guest includes a text that enriches and expands the content of the book.

In addition, unpublished texts were presented at the exhibition:
The wolf and the stardust y Sweet Mother.
