- What is each story about? How did you build them?

- The first part contains all the chronicles, where I collect the testimonies of the survivors and narrate the facts that I witnessed as a journalist. Here you can also find the legends of the 85 photographs that I divided into three chapters:

1.- 'Rescue and hope' is the first chapter that relates the search and forensic exhumation of the disappeared. How we approach first, we arrive at the place and we find each other. The tests, the bullet casings. There are the stripes left by the blows of the machete that the military used to kill people. The remains found are placed in boxes. The relatives take the boxes and leave. Visually I do as a mountainous transit, but if something ends, something else is starting, which is the daily life, the current, what continues. The hope of the new generation.

2.- "The Exhumer of the Andes" is the story of Danall Aramburú, member of the Specialized Forensic Team of the Public Prosecutor's Office. He is an archaeologist who has unearthed approximately 600 bodies in the five years he has been working for the EFE. I also dedicated myself to photograph him as a character, I started to follow him.

3.- Then comes "The pain of return". This is in Huanta and in Huamanga, it occurs in two different years, but it runs the same, it is narrative. Realize the delivery of the remains. Even though they return, there is a pain that does not heal. And the State does nothing to cure it. It is not that you are delivered to your dead and already. I think there must be a repair. There is a debt to the children and grandchildren of the disappeared because they are also victims.
