In Flaca Escopeta I talk about my relationship with my father since he passed away, through the use of photographs that evoke a feeling of stillness, silence and chaos; all at the same time.
“Flaca escopeta” translates to “little shotgun” in Spanish. In the rural areas of Argentina it is a common nickname or way to calling someone that is really skinny. It is typically used by conservative “gauchos” (cowboys) towards girls. My father used to call me that everyday since I was a child, therefore comparing my little legs with the barrel of a gun.
