Casa. Against the evaporation of memory
I wanted to capture the images before leaving it all
With my mother and brother, I wanted to conjure up in this kitchen at rest, around an accordion, a seahorse or a box of beetles, the events this house had witnessed.
The echoes of life in these walls. Tenderness, love, family. The last small rituals before leaving, appeased.
