Full portraits

The years 1958-1960 were the most prolific. Vieitez made numerous full portraits that often were sent to people who had drifted from the poor Galician coutryside.
Emigration explains why Vieitez’s photographs are often full of the absence of relatives and mostly show children, women and old people. It explains strange objects, too, such as the photograph showing an old woman with her radio who proves to her son that she used the money he sent her from abroad properly. Photography is then, in a familial circle, a means of communication.
