Reminiscences
Project info

This project talks about the relationship of abandonment of my Mother, and the relationship of the city of Santiago de Chile with me, this city is the city that should have seen me grow but due to circumstances of life I do not let myself grow in it. This work was done in the year 2017 all the photographs are taken with a cell phone, they show the sensations that run through my body when walking through the streets of Santiago although they do not show any part of the city. My mother never was, it was always a distant relationship, I lived many years out of Chile, I spent nine years without seeing my father when I was a child, when I returned to Chile in 1985 I lived with him for a few months and died of cancer in my arms, then I leave Chile in 1988 and back in 2000, I find out that my sister has cancer I accompany her two years and she dies, she also dies in my arms, six months after the death of my sister dies my mother. It took me 17 years to dare to do this work, it was necessary to reconcile with Santiago this city that should have seen me grow but I did not let myself grow in it. The work shows nine self-portraits of mine, it took me nine months to finish this work,
This project talks about the relationship with my mother since I was in her womb until the day of her death, it was necessary since I had to reconcile with her, I also had to reconcile with my city, this city with which I have had a relationship of love and hate.
