When you left

It is an intimate exploration of a time between parentheses. There, in the silence, where the gaze is restarted and the glimpse of its limits and its tracks begins: shadow, reflection, horizon. Visual narrative that investigates the resonances between the affective dimension and the environment. A look that focuses on the void and on the emotional relationships that are generated between the thickness of the body and the environments it transits; a journey after the loss.

This project starts with photography, it works through an application programmed exclusively for mobile devices on an Instagram profile, with a series of preloaded images along with some quotes from different authors. The images (still and moving) have been taken, almost entirely, with Iphone 7s mobile devices in different places from continental America, the Caribbean and Europe between 2019 and 2020. This first stage is made up of 69 images, 4 short texts and quotes from different authors. The project was advised in editing by photojournalist Héctor Guerrero and in curatorship by Dra. Zaira Espíritu.
