[Greek autopsi, a seeing for oneself : auto-, auto- + opsis, sight; see okw- in Indo-European roots.]

"Hic locus est ubi mors gaudet sucurrere citae"
"This is the place where death delights to help the living"

An autopsy—also known as a post-mortem examination, necropsy (particularly as to non-human bodies), autopsia cadaverum, or obduction—is a procedure that consists of a thorough examination of a corpse to determine the cause and manner of death and to evaluate any disease or injury that may be present. It is usually performed by a a pathologist. (wikipedia)

The corpse was my heart, the pathologist was me. To goodbyes, to closure, to good riddance, to finding a new beginning, to closing the book, to seeing for oneself, to forgiving and to forgetting

Francesca Ritchey

Francesca, an accomplished photographer hailing from Mexico City, embarked on her artistic journey with a desire for self-expression. Through her practice, she endeavors to redefine visual perceptions by harnessing the interplay of light and geometry.

In her transformative approach, Francesca imbues real structures with imaginative forms, inviting viewers to challenge their preconceived notions of reality. Each image serves as a conduit for individual interpretation, influenced by the viewer's unique experiences.

Francesca finds profound joy in the power of imagery to convey multilayered narratives, offering viewers a fresh perspective on the world and the inner depths of the human psyche. For her, the essence of art lies in its ability to encapsulate a multitude of emotions and ideas within a single frame, sparking introspection and contemplation in the observer.
