This work is a tribute to the memory of the photographer’s mother, to the relationship between the daily life of women and the implications of motherhood. These images speak of nostalgia and loss, but also of survival. A bed, a chair, a lipstick, a perfume bottle or a pearl necklace draw us into the story behind the photographs. Phrases taken out of context, embroidered so that they will never unravel, complete this ray of emotion that Beatriz Ruibal manages to convey, which ultimately finds meaning in death through the evocative power of photography.

The project consists of colour photos in different formats and texts embroidered in gold and silver thread on cotton.
