HUÉSPED
DIEGO MORENO

ABOUT THIS BOOK

OSCURANA presents a body of work that arises from the various trips that Antoine d'Agata has made for more than thirty years in the countries of Brazil, Peru, Nicaragua, Salvador, Ecuador, Bolivia, Guatemala, Haiti, Puerto Rico, the United States, Cuba and Mexico, and from a selection of Antoine d'Agata's work in Latin America, this collaborative project is developed between 6 publishers from various countries, in a dialogue and form of production that opens up new proposals in the production of photobooks. 
OSCURANA offers a reflection on the work of the extraordinary French author Antoine d'Agata from various countries and publishing houses. It also proposes an exploration of the richness of the possibilities offered by collaborative publishing projects. The 7 different books share Antoine d'Agata's artistic statement, the text called OSCURANA and the same size, giving each publisher freedom in the selection of images, design, choice of materials, printing and binding. An essential part of the project is that each book has been developed and produced in each publisher's country, using local printing processes and materials, making the book a living medium that responds to processes of collaboration and dialogue. These 7 books are brought together in a special edition box of a limited print run of 100 copies, designed by Ramon Pez and produced by INFRAMUNDO. When opened, this box exposes silkscreen images and the 7 books showing different versions of Antoine d'Agata's OSCURANA body of work. 
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.
