Isabel is a long-term photographic series developed in Santiago de Chile that takes us through a claustrophobic journey.
For five years I went along with Isabel (63) taking care of her father due to the promise she made to her deceased mother and the impossibility of paying for a nurse or a nursing home. "Isabel" is an intimate and self-sacrificing father-daughter relationship that has led our protagonist to self-confinement for more than ten years, isolating herself and postponing her own existence for the well being of Jorge (97), her father.

Durante cinco años acompañamos a Isabel (63) en los cuidados de su padre ante la promesa que le hizo a su difunta madre y la imposibilidad de pagar por una enfermera o un asilo de ancianos. "Isabel" es una  intima y abnegada relación padre e hija que ha llevado a nuestra protagonista a un autoencierro  desde hace mas de diez años, aisladose y postergando su propia existencia en función del bienestar de Jorge (97), su padre.
