The Lovers of Valdaro.
Believed to be no older than twenty years of age when death occurred.
Over 5,000 years old.
Locked in an eternal embrace.
Tragically, their story is unknown.
Ironically, they were found in the city of Mantua. In Italy.
The city Shakespeare chose to set the story of Romeo & Juliet.
It looks like he was telling her ‘Shhh, It’ll be okay’
This project was undertaken to recreate the postcards of the last century but this time the feelings playing alongside photographs. Postcards were sent to thousands of Mexicans living outside the country, randomly selected, with the following sentence: “still misses you”
