Living with Diogenes Syndrome in a family environment has driven me to create this project, in which I have photographed objects chosen by my mother, in a dramatic exploration of her pain and fear of emptiness.

I wanted to approach her in a sensitive, sincere manner, and she has expressed her connection to these objects in her own words. Throughout this process, I have learned to appreciate the naturalness with which she assumes her situation and to better understand her way of living.

This is a double love story – my love for her and her love for the objects that populate her life.
