Darkness,

loneliness

and fear

are forming a triangle of immanent addiction.

The darkness activates fear and paralyzes,

then there I can hear loneliness.

 

 

 

 

For seven years I lived in a room of the old Palacio Salvo hotel, at this time, the building and its inhabitants became my home. It was later, when I moved from the place, that I decided to start photographing what I had experienced there.
This building in the city of Montevideo, was inaugurated in 1928 and built by the Italian architect Mario Palanti. History says that, based on the admiration professed by the poet Dante Alighieri, the architect designed the building with a similar structure in the three states of the Divine Comedy: Infiero, Purgatorio and Paraíso. The cellars would represent Hell, the central part of the building, Purgatory and the tower with its dome, Paradise.
My room was in the central part of the building.

The problem that I addressed is my connection with loneliness. I focused on her having my person as the subject of it, to then work on different topics that surround her and thus be able to complete the true or erroneous image of my relationship with her.
The work is for me a symbolic and subjective exercise, in which the emotional memory of those years is its main ally.
