Cristina Nuñez began taking photographic self-portraits in private in 1988 to overcome self-esteem issues that led her to drug addiction during her teenage. This practice allowed her to shape her own emotions and to reveal her presence to the world. At the same time, through an uncompromising gaze at herself, she created a powerful instrument to project the plasticity of her identity.


The video is a diaporama with the artist’s voice narrating her story through family photos and self-portraits, forming a sort of “lifeline” that also combines some significant images of her ancestors and portraits of her family, investigating the relationships with them and among them, and showing a constant pursuit of her own roots and identity through faces and bodies.
