This series of photographs is an evident play on words between "hope" and the name of the United States painter Edward Hopper. The characters in these photographs do not look at the camera or at each other, they only want to get out of themselves, to flee from the silence and the solitary confinement, to approach the spectator to denounce the social hypocrisy and appearances and to show themselves just as they are, with virtues and faults but, above all, to not live on the margins of society.
