Entry Description

The double exposure images are a metaphor of my father's senile dementia and an exercise of appropriating that glance in the constant performance of condescendence of that irrationality. The images portray that overlapping of different spaces that the senile mind tends to mold, often referred to a past time. I started this project ever since I left Peru and my father as the only way of still performing in distance, the appropriation of his clouded glance. After his death this body of worked merged with archive images and family quotes in a hand made photo book.
