Pepe Guinea was diagnosed with a brain tumor five years ago. After a long period of continuing to live normally, he suddenly fell to the ground whilst out on the street. A feeling of weakness overwhelmed him. “Hogar” becomes the photographic diary of his experiences of confinement. For him, this was also the way to manifest a reality which, although difficult to share, must be faced.
