Mi madre by Iñaki Domingo | en
When I was 13 years old my mother had a brain hemorrhage caused by a car accident. From that moment onwards, my life took a violent turn and my teenage years ended instantaneously.
During the next nine years her disease lasted, I impotently and desolately observed how she gradually degenerated, losing faculties and more and more in need of aid from others.
Although she lost the ability to speak, I needed to continue communicate with her and I found in photography a good medium to enter her own universe. I began to photograph her daily routine, her daily acts, her means, her strolls, baths and her rest. But further than this, I photographed above all her restless gaze, attempting to delve inside her through it.
The need to carry out this project arises from those years of co-existence, as a medium for exteriorising a jumble of feelings and considerations stored from that time; perhaps in a desperate search for answers from questions that don’t have any responses.
