"(...)The series (hi)stories is set in this balance between reality and fiction. Words and images. Words, despite belonging to concrete fragments of people’s childhoods, tell stories that time has made uncertain. Here, images are not shown in the scientific, optical and mechanical, accuracy that the camera (another “memory box”) was designed to capture. Words and images. We are invited to come close to read the former but to step back in order to observe the latter. We continue this ongoing cycle of what is remembered and what is forgotten.(...)" Valter Ventura.
