Memories from the cliff
This photograph shows one of my most intimate memories and portrays me free of artifice.
The memories are always latent so that we do not forget where we came from, or to which places we should not return.
Ester Frouchtman SPAIN
I grew up in Hospitalet, a neighborhood on the outskirts of Barcelona and I studied design and art history but my approach to photography was practically self-taught. In fact, it all started 6 years ago when I was given what is still the camera I use today to take my pictures. At the beginning my interest was focused on documentary photography that served me to observe the daily scenes around me, but after doing a master's degree in photography I discovered a new language in gastronomic photography.
From my point of view, eating goes beyond food. For me, food is a way of communication, a way of expressing ideas and reaching people, and that's why I use food as a tool for expression in an exercise of inner exploration.
My work talks about the search for my own identity through my memories, in an attempt to reconstruct my family past. Thus, this observation of my own environment serves as a mirror for me to see and analyze the behaviors of the society in which I live.
