Raquel O’Czerny / Can you see me, daughter ?
Raquel O'Czerny, Brazilian documentary photographer currently based on São Paulo.
Raquel is part of the series " Curating New Angles", where Roberta Tavares is conducting an experience based on previous exercises and narratives main points and pointers of those sustaining a visual identity by elements and moods playing with imaagination and interpretation but they are back to the questions and provocations who make these authors and storytellers unique in their purpose.
The story " Can you see me, daughter" evaluates the swift of the lens and perspectives of social structured roles. The presence of mothers, the dependability and exaustion being attentive while attending all demands to feel and to perform the perfect role of motherhood with no guilty sagas before sleeping. You see everything and keep overthinking the best efforts, you meet in the prompt realization asking you back 'who are seeing you'? What is the image left to the daughter, the women before and now after you, what is the legacy and genetic social codes heritages of royal models, what kind of woman is visible and invisible there in that room when her eyes are opened and how are her eyes looking for more bold ways to interact beyond wishes and needs, norms and rules taught to one who taught others in the chain, but to create her own links of recognition. Is there a way to call you to truly see me, daughter? Can you see what i need to be for you or your sensitive eyes can meet me in what I wish I could be ? (Roberta Tavares )
