• Las Mariposas


Series of 42 photographic images of 35x50 cm, each one representing a small collection of butterflies.
On the back of every butterfly has been written the name of a young woman.


I started this work in the autumn of 2007, after having heard about the tragic phenomenon of the femminicidio in Ciudad Juárez.
In this work, 600 butterflies are arranged neatly on 42 sheets, a kaleidoscope which, to a more attentive eye, recalls the name inscribed on each butterfly, the drama of many young women.
