This is a portrait of
Sanfins, the village where I was born.
Due to an
administrative error, the village of Sanfins is indicated as my
birthplace on my official papers although I was born in the
neighbouring town. I am the only one in the world to have this
village as my birthplace and I take it as if the village belonged to
The only reason my family, including me, still visits
Sanfins is because of my grandmother. Unfortunately, she suffers from
leukemia and the worst is yet to come and I'm afraid if we don’t
visit Sanfins anymore, it will be forever forgotten.
village is not very populated and it is mainly made up of my family,
I wanted to create a memory, a trace of it and I thought it would be
my duty to keep the village alive by showing it to the people all
around the world.
The name of the village reminds me of "sans
fin" in French, which means "endless", which totally
made sense for me when realising this project.
