POR LA CARIDAD ENTRA LA PESTE (NO GOOD DEED GOES UNPUNISHED)
My place and date of birth are Spain and 1979. These data would be enough to guess a lot about who I am, based only on the historical context and my gender condition, but that, we know, would not be enough. Beyond our own circumstances there is an individual nature that develops and adapts to the environment in which it lives, that reacts to stimuli and, when the time comes, stops and reflects. The place and date of this reflection are Spain and 2022 and I have named it No good deed goes unpunished (Por la caridad entera la peste), a proverb that is almost out of use, but no less eloquent for what I propose to share with this work. In the same way that proverbs are born from repeated individual experience until they become popular wisdom, this series dialogues between the intimate and the collective, the anecdotal and the historical. And it does it with a tool, photography, which has been riding between these two extremes since the begining and to which I, now, discover as a new expressive dimension. No good deed goes unpunished (Por la caridad entra la peste) is a compendium of small visual reflections that were born from the need to evaluate and understand who I am and what I do. Ones the project is finished I have understood that the apple does not far from the tree fall, he who perseveres, succeeds and that if it is true that the exception makes the rule, then if you want to be loved, you should not buy a dog.
