Ana Álvarez-Errecalde (ES) My Parents

Photographs, 2003

My parents are my base, the origin of who I am. They have lived many years of loving and living together, sharing joy and suffering. Even if they are two separate beings I have always seen them as one amazing combination. In these images their bodies join like the intertwined branches of a majestic tree, making it difficult to see where one starts and the other begins, spinning in an eternal dance with no beginning and no end.
