Aesthetics is my
latest work. I decided two years ago to re-visit some of the
places where I have been photographing during the last fifteen
years. The challenge was to look at them with “new eyes”.
In order to do that, I did a photograph as I used to do years
ago and, at the same time, to get another totally different
using the same equipment. So once I had selected the places, I
visited them trying to get both images at the same time: a
photograph like my old ones, and a new one through a new
approach. The goal was to get two images almost completely
different and to question the limits of classic landscape
photography. Each diptych shows two images done in the same
place, at the same time and with the same camera. A place
looks totally different in both photographs. The first one
showing that was in front of my eyes; the second one showing
an “abstraction” of the same location.
this portfolio consists of pairs of images showing two visions
of the same places. These images pairs confront reality and
possibility, classicism and abstraction in an attempt to
transcend appearance, pursuing a maybe impossible attempt to
represent what is not in front of our eyes.
Aesthetics is still in progress ...
