The photograph Familia andaluza (Andalusian Family) is glued to a wooden frame, the way that AFAL group photographs were shown in exhibitions in the 1960s, with neither exterior frames nor glass. It is a group portrait, face-on as tradition demanded, of at least fifteen people looking out at the viewer with the seriousness and imposing presence of the old formal portraits of royal families. Ontañón uses the doorjamb to create a claustrophobic image, where the family becomes a caged, nervous huddle, full of an energy that sooner or later is going to have to break free.
