Our latest showcase is photographer, Pepe Guinea, with his series 'Hogar'.

Five years ago I was diagnosed with a brain tumor in a location which made treatment difficult. After a period of being able to live with it fairly easily, a few months ago I fainted in the street. This put me in touch with a strong sense of fragility. Fear of calling attention to myself in an unpleasant situation in public meant that I was very anxious about going out and more and more frequently sought refuge in my house.

‘Home’ is an intimate diary of this experience of confinement, a product of the impulse to continue taking photographs during a stressful time.

It is also a way to make visible a reality that, from the beginning, has been hard to share, and that has to do with the way my life has been affected by a chronic disease with which I am trying to learn to live.
