These are photographs that my grandmother has been gathering over the years. Going back to my grandmother's house is an encounter with the past. She is an older person and the house continues as we left it, everything is in the same place, my room is almost the same... Romania. 2017

My grandfather was the nexus of the family. Since we left, I could see him a few times. Returning to the funeral was very hard. We knew that this moment would come and you get doubts: is it worth it to spend so much time away from your family and return only to bury them? Romania. 2016

This is my mother, Daniela. She came to Spain in 2004. It was very difficult at the beginning for her to live in here. "All I thought was to go back" she said.  When we arrived in Spain, my brother and I, things changed. My mother assumes now that she will not return to Romania to live. Romania 2018

I have lived a long time angry with Romania because I felt that it had forced my parents to leave away from my family, my friends... I found in the photograph, as a medium, a way to start another kind of 'conversation' with Romania. Romania 2018
