Encarna Marín and Pablo Pro
Encarna Marín's images belong to his latest collaborative project, "El lugar de los recuerdos" ("The place of memories): "Objects that live with us have life, arouse feelings, we wish them and, once they come into our existence, we establish a relationship with them. Your bedside book, the glass where your son learned to drink alone, the heart-shaped box that you found on the street in your first appointment. We also have places, sounds, smells or flavors that are exclusively ours or that we share with our closest people. There are so many memories that we love in our life...
