Eva is the seed

Eva Morera Ulloa died at the age of 19. She was murdered by her ex-partner and the father of her son, who was then three years old.

Her parents, Oscar Morera and Alina Ulloa, her son Julián, her sister, her niece… everyone must live with the loss and the burden of her absence. This family, like the families of so many women who have been murdered by men, because they are women, must face enormous challenges. These range from criticism to the struggle to change a society that nurtures violence against women. Sows it and reaps it.

Photographer Priscilla Mora Flores visited Eva’s family, listened to them and photographed them. Her images and the words of Eva’s parents tell the story of a future without their daughter.

Don Oscar has launched two efforts related to this issue, both of which have Facebook groups: Familias sobreviviendo el femicidio (Families surviving femicide) and Es de hombres (It’s a guy thing). Our two previous installments in this series on femicide in Costa Rica are A funeral by the sea and Femicides can’t be predicted, but they can be prevented.
