Publisher's Description

Selected as a Book of the Week by Alec Soth

Out of Print. Numbered Edition of 100.

In theory, family is a community established primarily on the basis of emotional solidarity, providing basic needs, regulating moral life in society and being one of the three pillars of its support (the other two are the market and the State). Family ties in Latin America are important and present at all stages of personal life. The family moderates and sustains relations at practically all levels. The representation of the family is an important part of Colombian artist Guadalupe Ruiz’s work.

In search of what she calls a “domestic epiphany”, the artist questions stereotypes and documents sadness, failures, joys and novelties. “I portray members of my own family in particular manner in an attempt to direct the spectator’s eye to what I consider to be really important in describing my characters, trying to capture the exact moment when something happens in life” says Guadalupe.

Her work is documentary, apparently without any prior preparation of her subjects, and seeks to capture slices of everyday life, at time with tenderness and some bitterness by challenging issues related to identity and social representations, and at other times with humor and refined irony – family poetics ready to challenge clichés.
