Review and collection of Luis Maldonado's missing files; A friend and classmate at the time when we were both photography students.


His archive has been floating around friends and family, spread in boxes and houses, folders and bags. This work is an attempt to keep the memory of my beloved friend alive. Together we shared our first steps as photographers, our places, stories of youth, families and the process of his disease that eventually ended his life. (2012 - Ongoing).
