In Diego Moreno’s work there is a tense calm. A kind of mutism plagued by murmurs. Everything begins at home: a domestic scene, a birthday, a religious rite. The family space in which many of us have grown up. However, something else is shown in his photographs, something that remains hidden in our family albums. These overflowing beings are the panzudos mercedarios, protagonists of a tradition that has been celebrated for nearly a century in the neighborhood of La Merced, in San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas. Diego finds these characters a means to give voice and presence to a different corporeality, while recalling the memories of a childhood in which love, isolation, and fascination for the anomalous configured a particular vision of the world.
