ABOUT THIS BOOK

Vorágine, by Orlando De la Rosa, arises from the author's imperative need to name the hidden facts of his own history. Thus, through GO and back and forth between reality and fiction, he tells the story of a family after the father's murder. 

Through the process of constructing and editing the images that make up this book, the photographer explores a series of events that question the limits of morality and where human nature reflects its indomitable character: a violent land where the heat suffocates, characters fleeing from the past, skins that rub against each other until they hurt and an uncontrollable desire that ignores blood. 
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.
