Reflection and Transparency

How do we perceive our surroundings and how do we interact with each other?

In the series “Estudio de Luz: A Study on Reflection and Transparency”, the over-saturated colors and apparent double-exposures are easily dismissed as digital alterations. Still, these photographs are direct takes on what the camera sees. While placing colored filters in front of the lens, I generate reflections and transparencies that force different angles to converge into a single frame, proposing a more profound act of seeing.

This playful process brings together otherwise-unrelated planes onto which varied levels of existence merge; individuals, surfaces, and moments are bound to collide and interact with each other. To understand the identity of a city we must first take a closer look at human association and the meanings we give to the urban landscape. Modern cities are filled with people yet devoid of human influence; individuals are today more isolated than ever before.
