About The Artwork

My grandfather passed in July of 2014. He left behind a legacy of hard work, and a complicated family. He also left behind his farmland, La Gloria, just outside of Bogotá. He spent 40 years developing to what it is now. A fertile, beautiful land. I’ve been connected to La Gloria since the day I was born. After my grandfather’s passing I decided to dive into my first autobiographical project. Having photographed for two years, I tried to make sense of my images, La Gloria, and my family. I’ve spent my entire life trying to make sense of it, but now realize that is a lost cause. Titling the project and each image was going to make or break it. I realized that giving each image a specific title is just me attempting to make sense of my family. Make sense? In an attempt to let go, I wrote about my life experience of La Gloria. I then lined up the finished text with my sequenced photographs. Viewing the sequence, the titles reveal the entire text as originally written. Some title/image combinations, I might never comprehend. Others resonate so much that it’s creepy. Either way, it is what it is. I didn’t try to make sense of my family with the titles. When photographing, writing, editing and sequencing, yes. When creating titles, no. I just let it be. Now all these titled images are as new to me as they are to anyone. Revealing whatever my mind tries to make of it, or just accepting them as they are. Like a Espejo (Spanish for “mirror”). Not a bad way to make peace with family. *Also available in custom limited edition sizes. Please inquire at for details and pricing.

Santiago brings an interesting set of aesthetics to his work. He has navigated in and out of two cultures throughout his life. Born in Philadelphia and then moving back and forth between the United States and his native country of Colombia, eventually staying in Colombia for the next 14 years. Inspired by his mother, a painter, Surrealist art, Latin American magic realism, music, and the world of cinema, Santiago creates work that looks at the dark and the light in life. "I see the world in a way that even to me is a bit strange, but very real. The world is a strange, complicated, and fascinating place. I’m constantly drawing metaphors of how I see the world and its future. My images are about the relationship between reality and perception." His work has been featured in Surface Magazine, WIRED, Flaunt Magazine, Featherstitch Avenue, Picture Magazine, GRAPHIC Magazine UK, Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Lenscratch.
