Palimpsestos


In Medieval times, a palimpsest was a manuscript page from a scroll or book where the text had been scraped off in order to use it again. 

Living and working in Guatemala, I began to note the relationships between the topics I was documenting. However, the documentary and press photography formats tend to isolate themes, and I had difficulties reflecting these relationships in my work.

This series was born after I developed a roll and discovered some frames I had superimposed by mistake.  I cannot control which images will end up superimposed, so the results are coincidental.
