HUÉSPED
DIEGO MORENO

ABOUT THIS BOOK

OSCURANA presents a body of work arising from Antoine d'Agata's travels over more than thirty years in the countries of Brazil, Peru, Nicaragua, Salvador, Ecuador, Bolivia, Guatemala, Haiti, Puerto Rico, the United States, Cuba and Mexico. As part of the editorial project 
OSCURANA, INFRAMUNDO presents this book that offers a look at the work of Antoine d'Agata. The images flow throughout the book taking us from pain, loneliness, desolation, through desire, passion, death and the fragile line that unites and divides them. The author's gaze, always on the edge between the state of consciousness and that of immersion in darkness, sensuality and pain. 
The book constructs a narrative in which the photographs merge with the materials, where papers such as the so-called revolution, or the fragile butter paper, are interspersed with the raw texture of kraft, and other interesting papers found in Mexico.  
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.
