Quieta is a book of photographs by Guadalupe Gaona that trace the slow process of the dismantling of an aristocratic mansion. This is the event chosen to be photographed. A lapse of time moving from full to empty, in which the dwelling gradually loses its household attributes and ceases to be inhabitable, becoming a desolate space. A transfiguration recorded systematically, though with no evident method; recorded, rather, with a certain melancholy.
The result is a highly original and innovative creation in the context of Latin American photography. The book was selected as the winner of the first RM Latin American Photobook Competition by a jury composed of Horacio Fernández, Graciela Iturbide, Martin Parr, Lesley Martin, Álvaro Sotillo, Diran Sirinian, Ramón Reverté, Alexis Fabry, and Juan Pablo Quiroz.
