“Para que no me olvides” (“do not forget me”) is inspired by an old Spanish song, which recalls the main idea of this photographic series: the concept of time passing, remembering and forgetting, since the absence of memory might be considered as a sort of lost of identity. No memory means forgetting who we are.
“Para que no me olvides is bound to two main pulsions that feed our human mind: love and death, eros and thanatos; literary references are taken by two Spanish poets Blas de Otero, Miguel Hernandez.
Poetry is just a recall to focus on the main idea of memory and identity, absence and oblivion
