La buena esposa


a visual essay that explores the tension between duty and desire during the franquismo

Entre 1939 y 1975, el franquismo, de la mano del nacional-catolicismo, incentivó un modelo de mujer basado en el ideario de mujer-madre-esposa que permeó en las vidas de millones de personas aceptando como normal o natural todo aquello que venia impuesto.
La buena esposa plantea un encuentro con episodios de las vidas de ocho mujeres nacidas durante la dictadura a través de la relectura e interpretación de sus archivos fotográficos personales.


Serie compuesta por 56 fotografias.
Negativo blanco y negro.
Medio formato 6x6cm.
