What remains of what it was - Album Cabanas

Intervention on silver print gelatin proof. 30×40 cm 

“(…) In “O que ficou do que foi” (“What remains of what once was –Cabanas Álbum), the artist invokes memory imprecision through erasing, scratching, and fading away of images belonging to her closest surrounding: family. The photographic processing torn off – accumulating in the bottom of the frame – erases information on spaces, context and characters. Just like we all unwillingly discard our personal history, until what remains is but ashes from times gone by.”
