” Si Dios Quiere” explores issues of intimacy and distance within my mother’s family in Argentina.
I used my mother’s childhood home in Buenos Aires as a stage and her family members as characters in the images. As the project developed, the boundaries expanded. It was no longer essential that each person was a blood relative or that the apartment was the only setting.
What was once a project about my particular family- like an extended photographic family tree- shifted into a long-term project about family dynamics and the relationships with the spaces we occupy. The word “Family” acts as a tie between people, but the extent of that connection depends on several factors. Families can be separated by physical distance, but often it is more complicated and the relationships themselves form walls and boundaries.
