Through this project I do not attempt to create a faithful portrait of their reality. Instead, I hope to recreate the reality of the experience of living with them. — Salva López

Spanish photographer Salva López documents the 5 years he spent with his grandparents in his poignant series Roig 26. Living in a tiny flat in central Barcelona, López slept in the very room where his grandmother was born decades before. From this stage of domestic history, a portrait is painted of Jóse and Marina, their daily lives and patterns washed in soft light and quiet words. Though he acknowledges that his familial archetypes exist in a world of roles and customs foreign to him, Lopez’s view is one of a compassionate participant, full of ever-present love and understanding for those who represent a part of himself.
