ABOUT THIS BOOK

Vientre (La Mixteca, Oaxaca, 2013-2018) delves into the links and contrasts between beauty and cruelty, between the different facets of appetite in the context of the slaughter of the goat, where the living dead, the pain and the affection occur in the same instant, the same territory. Here there is a land that is still being walked, beaten, sown, the roots intermingle and fight between the past and a new time. Vientre is that cave lair where everything is unleashed, there we return, a humid home where people and animals cohabit, sharing as much as custom, a field that will soon be another. The desert advances, survival changes shape as bodies do. And as they dry in the sun, I dive and wait for the shriek, the movement and the static in the open sky, under tile or cane, so close to the limits of being, the extremes in the raw. 
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. 

NADIA DEL POZO

Born in Palma de Mallorca, she graduated in Humanities and Journalism, with a master's degree in Screenwriting. She worked in production companies and television until she dedicated herself independently to writing and photography, moving to Oaxaca in 2013. Her personal projects are also set in the countryside, interested in rural ways of life, the relationship between land, family and memory. She has recently participated in the cinematography of the film "Cartas de Lucía", based on documentary research and the testimonies of young women who have been victims of epidemic violence in El Salvador.
