Quien me vé, ve a mi abuela, una herida y nuestra historia


One day I came across an old photo album that had belonged to my uncle David, who had been ordained a priest of the Vincentian order. In the album there was only one photograph where my grandmother appeared, it was a photo with all her siblings, my great-grandfather and my uncle David in the center, recently ordained priest. My grandmother Carmen was standing in the left corner of the frame and cropped in half because the photographer had taken her out of the frame. I decided then, to be the photographer of my family and create a new family album, a counter-album, where women are at the center of the visual representation, deciding who we are and how we build our relationship with the spiritual and religious world, as opposed to the gaze of a Latin American patriarchal culture.
