Hay Días Así is autofictional therapy at its best. Each instax printed polaroid is a self-portrait taken with Jacqueline's iphone to stop her from dwelling long in crying. Each photograph is a poetic intervention that helps her to change her moods. Each snapshot allows for testing new ways of being without the presence of her beloved. During the time of the exhibition Care~Repair at Flushing Town Hall in June, Jacqueline will add new polaroids to this collection as they come.
