Argentina –  

“How does it feel to return to the city you are from, but of which you have never been part? To walk the streets in the quest of memories, of familiar faces. Trying to feel at home, because that place was once your home. I decided to walk the streets of Puerto Madryn to encounter the exact place where I was born, a place that no longer exists; to encounter a family, my family, that is no longer that same family. I returned to this town after ten years, with a little disposable camera, trying to register those disposable memories of my childhood, memories that I finally realized, do not really exist. At all.”
