The word Nostos comes from the greek and means "back to homeland, return". If migration is a rigth, so is to return. The "Itaca" of Nicolas is a mountain town to which an earthquake decided to remove from the map in the 70. Anyway, nothing has been built on it. But how feasible is to return someone when that person passed away more than 20 years ago? The history of photography is not different from the story of Nicolás. Both have undergone a process of dematerialization. Elena without "h" is the post Odyssey: A conceptual Nostos. Without heroes, without mermaids. Whithout Gods, whitout tragedies. Without "h" for Elena.
