Itꞌs the first series Mabel began to work on during her years as a student in San Alejandro Academy in which she use photographs and real objects that have had a certain degree of relevance in her life anchored in familiar and personal costumes and memories. The pieces that conform this series establish a discourse based upon allusions to the children’s world and also from her hometown. Memories are a resource used by men in forming their self-identity, that is why this series is like a coming back to those places and experiences from her childhood.
In the formal aspect she reproduce images from the past to build up a sequence of facts that characterize the present time, and that do not necessarily mean they are identical to the series. In these portraits and self-portraits Mabel intended to intertwine aspects from the past making them a part of the present time. In this series there are also outstanding references of her ordinary life and her spiritual world which become a sort of therapy to the physical and psychic homesickness.
