THE PASSENGER.

This series is a mental journey, an autofictional photographic essay about leaving home, the people you used to see around
and who’ve suddenly disappeared. I tried to create a recollection and its own loss through the character of the passenger,
showing how significant and fragile images are when one’s trying to build a new life somewhere else,
far away from what used to be familiar and in a constant search for it.

EL PASAJERO.

Esta serie es un viaje mental, un ensayo autobiográfico de autoficción sobre dejar el hogar, las cosas que has construido, la gente a la que solías ver
y quienes de repente han desaparecido. He intentado recomponer una memoria y su propia pérdida a través de la figura del pasajero,
mostrando como de importantes y frágiles son las imágenes cuando uno está intentando construir una nueva vida en otro lugar,
lejos de lo que solía ser familiar y en una búsqueda constante de ello.
