“I know that I will not live in this house forever. The house will hopefully outlive me, but I wonder if a part of me will outlive the house.”. – Ruth Lauer Manenti

The loss of dear ones is reflected in the sense of belonging to a place, a house full of history, which also carries on the life of others. The book was inspired by several pictures the author had taken of her mother in 2017, briefly before she passed away. The book is a silent and moving contemplation of life beyond life
and the desire to find solace and presence within the walls of the place that we choose to call home

Designed by Ramon Pez, I Imagined It Empty was released in spring 2024 by three publishers as winner of the third edition of the Star Photobook Dummy Award (dedicated to the memory of Inés Casals, an initiative by the Photographic Social Vision Foundation), after being presented by Gabriela Cendoya Bergareche. Submissions for the fourth edition are open until early June. (Micamera is also a nominator!)
