‘’ My mom and I have a particular relationship.
In a letter she wrote me few years ago she said that when she was my age she wanted to kill herself cause she didn’t like herself. This discover and the awareness that if she decided to do so I would not be here, I would not exist, pushed me to recreate pictures that portray her at that specific time and the one right after, when she’s happy and loved by friends and lovers.
This project made me understand the impact that self love and the lack of it can have on us and our future. And it made me see that my face doesn’t really look like hers but much more to the man that then became my father. ‘’
