New antique series, of Jesús Limárquez

Slow Photo Collective, Madrid

Opening a drawer, find photographs of our ancestors and to recognize them as current as distant gesture is something that has always caught my attention.

It is the gesture of timelessness which serves me as a thread to move today, classical, static, almost forced poses, introducing into the equation a contemporary element to cause the effect of "spark" elements that serve as a counterpoint and break the dream of the past.

Positive wet collodion on aluminum, have been colored by hand seeking to integrate the context with the environment, reinforcing the effect of "old" without sacrificing contemporary.
