About the project

Participating in a workshop at the »Academia de Fotografía Cabrales del Valle« (Cabrales del Valle Photography Academy) in Havana. I was presented the task of making portraits. I didn’t want to make pose-looking-sexy-to-the-camera portraits, so I started to work in this series by taking pictures in situations where people look like having an accident. That’s why I called it Retratos muertos (Dead Portraits).
