Partnoy encontró inspiración en su  álbum familiar para crear sus series de pinturas: De la Vida, Las Ventanas de la Vida y Las Novias. Todas aquellas antiguas y ya ajadas  fotografías con  raros y tristes rostros, novias nostálgicas con forzadas sonrisas; bebitas con  cintas rosadas en su cabeza y bebes desnudos recostados sobre mantas bordadas, todos ellos mostrando expresiones adultas, le contaban historias, historias de nuevas generacions y de generaciones pasadas. Ellas le hablaban de vida, exilio, persecución y, muchas veces, de muerte.


Partnoy found inspiration in the family album to create her series of paintings: From Life, Life’s Windows, and The Brides. All those cracked old photographs with strange and sad faces, nostalgic brides with forced smiles, baby girls with huge topknots, baby boys laying over embroidered sheets,all of them with adult expressions, told her stories, stories about generations that come and generations that go. They spoke of life, exile, and many times, of death.
