Photo Essay

El duelo

El duelo I

It has been almost two years after the death of my father and my life has completely changed since then. His departure from this world has meant a break in my life, almost like being reborn.

These photos attempt to show something of what I felt and feel since then, anguish, rootlessness, loneliness, helplessness, and also, love and tenderness that brought us together and are with me now.

It is a journey into the depths of my soul, in between the shadows and pain, from darkness to light.

My dad always told me that he would be with me always, beyond this life, and though the absence is visible, he goes with me wherever I go, because he's a part of me.

    What a wonderful story. I understand how it feels to lose a parent, my father passed away 16 years ago. I haven't a doubt that you made him proud. Wonderful pictures!
