It is obvious that we are advancing towards the destruction of the planet. There are many factors that have importance in this absurdity but the main one is the scientific-technological-newtonian paradigm we are living in. Photography isn’t alien to that.

 

How photography conforms to reality is by a central perspective. This paradigm divides reality in an active principle, “the seeing eye” and a passive principle “the object that is observed”.

 

By objectifying reality we feel as if we are placed outside it. Therefore, we can use it according to our needs and wishes.

Born in Vitoria-Gasteiz in 1955. He belongs to that breed of photographers who are in love with the darkroom and with ancient photographic processes. His aim is to give a contemporary use to those artisanal photographic techniques.
