In this work, Mariela Sancari presents portraits of 70–year–old men, the age her father would be if he were still alive. The Argentine photographer is convinced that seeing the inert body of a dead person helps one to overcome one of the most complex stages of grief, denial. She was unable to see her father’s body and has therefore doubted his death in countless ways. In this volume, Sancari proposes and undertakes a fictional game in an attempt to help show the infinite storeroom of the unconscious, a mise en scène that allows us to represent our real desires and fantasies.
