-Oblivion can become a silent weapon of contempt and discrimination. All human beings needs bonds of love and support to develop in a healthy way. However, society has often shown that stigma, prejudice and disregard are the most common ways to make a person with a disability become invisible-
I started this project at the end of 2015. Initially I approached Jorge and his family from the place of classic photojournalism angle with the intention of photographing the tragedy and the victims of disability in Argentina. Then I understood that this was an important but non conditioning aspect and that despite having so much against, this family was trying to build a world to live in and not just to survive. I let some time goes by and I went back to photographing, but this time I did it after living with them for more than a year and a half.
This story seeks to highlight the reparative force of desire and the bonds of love in front of social injustices that threaten life itself. Also seeks to break with the preconceived ideas and disapproving looks from many sectors of society called “normal” about the possibility of a person with a disability to develop an autonomous life in most aspects.
