Defining what home really means is complicated. Home is way more than a location. It is about a feeling of belonging: a collective feeling which describes that place we have been looking for a lifetime
A place of determination
A place of finding identity
A place of security
In SAUDADE, I portrayed different people from different backgrounds —there were those who left their land by choice and those fled by force. I asked them to write down what their sense of belonging is.
I have complemented my attempt to define “home” through the others with a documentary project directed by young talents that recently migrated to Barcelona. With the help of disposable cameras, they have created a series called “Sueños” which captures their da-to-day life in their “new habitat”.
