About MOMENTOS

THESIS

Most people’s first encounters with photographic images start at home. 


These visual relics can form a mental picture of ones personal history and evoke feelings of personal attachment. It is this complex relationship with personal photographs that I am interested in. The role of photographs in daily life seems incomparable to any other relationship with an object.
