La buena esposa.

Between 1939 and 1975, the franquismo, hand in hand with the national-catolicismo, encouraged a model of a women that permeated in society, based on the ideal of woman-mother-wife. Rules and attitudes imposed along almost four decades were taken as normal, usual or natural.

La buena esposa presents an encounter with some episodes of the lives of eight women who were born during the dictatorship regime, through the interpretation of their personal photographic archives.

The project examines the way in which these relationships took shape through the images of their family albums, among which were vestiges of the portraits they sent to their lovers, friends or relatives.

Series of images.
B&W negative film: 6x6cm.
