"‘Ser Sangre’ (engl.: To Be Blood’ is a collaboration between Iñaki DOMINGO and his family to produce a visual record of their summer vacation together.
All members of the family were invited to participate in the decision-making process, from conception to the final form of the project as a book.
Each member of the family contributed intuitively whatever he or she thought could be of interest, though none of them had any artistic training or background in creative work. They produced installations, body painting, recipes, archival work, illustrations and performance.

DOMINGO’s photographs document these contributions by his family and constitute his own contribution to this collective narrative.
”Ser Sangre’ is a visual totem that shows who we are as a family, how we see ourselves, and how we interact: a sort of collective definition of ourselves,’ explains DOMINGO." (publisher's note, © RM 2014)

"Der Fotoband 'Ser Sangre' ist das Resutat eines Projekts, in das die Familie des Fotografen und Editors involviert ist.
Während eines Sommerurlaubs sollten alle Familienmitglieder festhalten, was ihnen wichtig erscheint, um es zu fotografieren. So ist nicht nur ein sehr vielfältiges Buch entstanden, das nebenbei auch das normale Chaos einer Familie, mit sehr unterschiedlichen Bedürfnissen und Sichtweisen abbildet.

Gleichzeitig erkundet Domingo, wie Familie in Fotoalben dargestellt wird. 'Ser sangre' (engl.: 'to be blood') ist ein im Offset-Verfahren gedrucktes Familienalbum - sehr ungewöhnlich und gleichzeitig so normal wie die privaten Alben, die wir im Drogeriemarkt erstellen können.
