Vera Victoria “Cuaderno de la Kursala nº 57”
Vera y Victoria are two young people who met over two years ago and fell in love. They share dreams of a life together and ignore the prejudice of others. They are simply two women who love each other, who complement, attract and understand each other. While they travel down the same path together, each keeps her own space.\n\nVera is vegetarian; she is finishing her studies in classical philology and is fascinated by animals. Vera has felt like a woman since her childhood, but she did not admit it to her family until she was eighteen. Since then, she has stopped calling herself Bernardo, and that boy vanished from her life. She is passionate about her causes and is proud of her body. She has no intention of undergoing surgery. She defends the idea that sexual identity is in the mind of each person and that gender reassignment surgery is a personal decision for the individual.\n\nVictoria holds down different temporary jobs as a waitress. She is a whirlwind of vitality and loves it when her partner surprises her with kisses when she least expects it.\n\nVera and Victoria are two young people aged twenty-six and twenty-two who have dreams, longings, fears and hopes. The project began in 2012 as a visual diary, and a page is written after each encounter with them. It is an intimate account of this young couple and the richness of their relationship.
