A region in West Central part of Mexico, where crime and violence reigns, discovers a new common threat with Covid-19. The inadequate transformation of a rural cottage to respond to the challenges of Covid-19. Desolation and sadness. A contrast of light and shadow, life and mystery, shelves full of empty hopes and desks without notebooks and pens. Life is only provided by rays of light that penetrate through holes created by time and neglect in the wooden ceilings. A gallery of images made of saints and virgins populate some of the walls, invoking protection and shelter.

I like to travel and encounter the world with its streets and its people, but the part that corresponds to my interest, my vision and philosophy of life. My photos are a look at someone's world, a journey into their space and their life; an attempt to build a story without affection, , as part of a social commitment. My images aim to reunite us with the common man, using a simple visual grammar that reveals the value of the everyday hidden life. Images that are the time of the people and the people in their time.
