About the Photograph:
“This picture is one of the first photos from a personal project called ‘Frail’. Frail is about those everyday moments when everything collapses. Small instants where our life changes, spins and breaks. Suspended moments in which something has just happened or is about to. Situations in which time, objects and places lose their physical nature and are full of us. Its a project about one single idea: We are vulnerable in the everyday. I took this picture traveling by car in Costa Rica with my friend Jaime. We meet Daniela and Mariana and we spent some days together. This photo was taken in our hotel room after a long day talking about personal confessions.”
