DIEGO MORENO

ABOUT THIS BOOK

Somne is the meeting point of what dwells in the collective unconscious. Brief dream scenarios with an open and enigmatic meaning that reflect an inner part of us. Primary codes where memory, fears, obsessions and compulsions construct an alternative scenario of our lives, which for some mark premonitory events or projections of some conflict. 

 Each image is a visual synthesis of someone else's recurring dream, recreated through a process of camera-less photography. These papierograms are tangible "micro-universes" in the instants of the dream.
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.
