"When Miguel Calderón's grandfather died he left Calderón a box of unexplained images, photographs and newspaper cut-outs of a man with various women. Calderón's republication of that material intermixes it with aphorisims from Mexican writer Guillermo Fadanelli and excerpts from Philip Roth's Sabbath's Theater. Without pretense or judgments, the artist presents the intimate, unsolved mystery of a loved one gone."
Included in The Latin American Photobook, pp. 218-219.
