Gracias por ser mi familia (Thank you for being my family)
In 1952 my grandparents met in Peru while working as missionaries. As they both worked they needed a live-in nanny. At the age of 18, Esperanza Caceres was hired. In 1968 my grandparents moved back to Northern Ireland. Esperanza soon followed, and has spent the last 50 years looking after our family. In doing so she has become more than just a nanny. It has come to a point in our family where Esperanza lives alone. I started collecting images from family albums to form a dialogue of Esperanza in both Peru and Northern Ireland. The importance of this project came to light when Esperanza said to me: "if you're not here, what's the point in me staying".
