Photography: Black & White, Liquid Emulsion, Gelatin Silver Print, Manipulated on Paper.
Asphalt Jungle. Edition 1/10. Photograph taken and enlarged in 2018. 80x125cm. Analog. Photographic liquid emulsion on handmade cotton + linen 500gr. paper. Hand-printed by the artist.
The leitmotif of my work for the last 10 years has been the road trip.
Choosing the technique of the liquid emulsion means playing with the surprise factor, just like when I make these pictures. Being captured from the car, until the film is not developed, I can not know what is the effect that the mark of the movement will leave. In the same way, in each copy I do not know what will be the final result until it has dried up. The paper I use, made up of cotton and linen fibers, reminds me of the organic character of the palms and the size, the car window. At the same time, horizontal brushstrokes and "imperfections" that generate remind me the movement.
Although the edition is 10 photographs, we must be aware that being a handmade technique, each copy acquires variations from the others, a fact that adds a unique piece character to each work. "Imperfections" become a unique, uncontrollable element, which adds character to the work.
