Light (and then, colour) are a main point to focus in Iceland. Here two pictures which analyses the brightness that some colours achieve on the Icelandic context. Even more curious the brightness of an already aged cord on the coast.  

Serial on going.

Meant to be (and in fact, it is) one of the most fascinating nature destinations, Iceland finds itself full of old forgotten machinery. Some of it consider today monuments, some other maybe just left over there as it might be cheaper to let it stay as bring it back somewhere else and process it.

Serial on going.

Shoots on the Square II

[Back to Part 1]

The next pictures are a serial of proposals. They started being nature questions, but could end on a very long list of any other topic, mainly related to politics and religion.

Up to Budapest and its empty potential space mainly used by artists for space interventions. Trying a new irony, this “meant to be” artistic space could be changed into a promotional icon. An advertisement  looking for new creatives creates a double irony on a capital with a communist background.

The last picture comes back to the celebrations issue. The irony is placed in Istanbul. The real advertisement refers to the China and celebrate its new year, the Tiger one, which is a beer brand… on a country where its religious tradition would not allow them to drink it?

Shoots on the Square 4

This project just pretends new situations in open public spaces, where messages can be easily reached. An innocent perspective for a big issue. Like drawings on newspapers. Like tourists would do on their traveling, like we would do on a weekend out in Vienna.

Project published on year 2010.

The more innocent sights are sometimes the more critical ones with its own environment. While analysing the public space we could easily have a look to this Coca-Cola advertisement where they wish us merry christmas… And it is happening on a church under work. Rising funds should be transparent, but it is still kind of paradoxical.

Shoots on the Square 1

Basically, what on a day were just celebrations for the season change, has been used by religions to support their own believing. Then, used once again by commercial purposes that finally support the own church who used such a celebration.

But let’s go a step further and play with imagination. Which ironies could we easily find on our urban environment? Would be politically correct to support Venecia’s works through advertisements of a catastrophal film?

Seating on a train might be one of the most reflecting experiences for many of us. I do enjoy every ride I take and sometimes I just feel amazed by the movement of static items.

When taking pictures through the window of a train to share them on Instagram, there are two aspects which get repeated: the blurry effect of movement, and a circle in the middle sign of the small objective of the phone’s camera.

Signs

‘Signs’ is a short serie of pictures developed in 2008 in order to bring a paradoxical meaning to common pictures.

The first two refer to a direct effect of tourism into main attractions in Berlin, while the second one uses the nuclear contamination sign on a nature-inspired-figure of one of the most polluted cities in Europe: Madrid
