Summary: The Family Project explores family memory, but also memory lapses and oblivion. I returned to the 20th century to piece together the traces that my family has left on maps in the course of a century of migrations. I compiled thousands of photographs and documents from institutional and family archives, and in each place I tried to photograph a mood that captures what happened there. This is a process of infinite connections, which opens up like Russian dolls. Each layer of history rests delicately on the previous one: to disclose its layers in order to narrate them is, in a sense, to change history.

Date and place of birth of photographer/s: Buenos Aires, 1973
