How to live in a state built upon the silence?

This is a photographic work based on a true story. It is a constructed story that includes images about how memories intertwine with reality and how they have a lasting impact on daily life.

The project is a reflection on the transition period in Spain that followed after the dictator Francisco Franco peacefully passed away in 1975. Spain needed to decide how to move from a dictatorship to a democracy. In order to forget the past, the “Pact of Forgetting” (Pacto del Olvido) was created. No one was held accountable for crimes they committed, facts were al­tered, and people slowly started to fill in the gaps of their memories with new information. The pact became an assumed ‘historical truth” and is still deeply rooted within the foundation on which Spain is built today.


This series of slideshows have been recorded in order to create new artistic and educational opportunities for the Futures Talents - the photographers that are part of Futures platform.

In 2020 Tbilisi Photo Festival has joined the FUTURES - Europe based photography platform co-funded by the Creative Europe program of the European Union. Futures bring together the global photography community to support and nurture the professional development of emerging artists across the world.
