I do walk a lot. I like explore places and walk with no planning direction or destination. Hamburg is a very beautiful city, with a lot of parks, canals, bridges and building styles. To Photograph is a way to appreciate the city as well as meditation, specially when I am alone.
It was my first time photographing with a square format camera, which felt odd to me after being used to work with panoramic camera. But the feel and effect from the very wide angle got my curiosity on keep trying looking for results I could get. It has such dynamic on it.
I have being photographing in two languages. The first one is the demanding language about the materialistic and tangible realism, that publicity and entertainment has being influencing the public as standard quality, although its quality is mainly on its technical aspect but empty essence, and which I have being trying to work less with.
The second one is the language referring to the world of ideas. The kind of work that when we look at, it gives a tick, and suddenly we are nowhere and everywhere, as if the time has stopped and is restrained in the work itself. This is what I have being looking for and its is not an easy task.
What most people haven't realized yet, is that the media has a lot to do about the message content. As Nail Postman once said, "technology is the biggest ideology of all". This is the main reason I photograph with analog cameras and pinhole. It is not about being wistful but about what Cicero would call the avoidance of the sense corruption. After all, soon or later we always go back to our roots, looking for something left behind. Specially when a culture becomes dominated by entertainment language.
