Statement
Mi práctica es principalmente fotográfica y de diseño de libros, se acompaña puntualmente del video y frecuentemente del dibujo, que aparece siempre en un vínculo estrecho con la fotografía. Utilizando formas como la serie, el ensayo fotográfico o el libro de artista, mi trabajo cuestiona las nociones de distancia, el dispositivo fotográfico, la geografía y su vínculo con el destino de las personas que la habitan, la memoria y el cuerpo como portador de historia. Utilizo la fotografía situándome en el borde fino que separa su estatuto documental del artístico, pues creo que la ‘huella de realidad’ se encuentra también en la intervención de la imagen. Por esto, la post-producción es un momento esencial de cada proyecto y puede ir desde la superposición de etapas de reproducción en una misma imagen hasta la pintura digital. Llevando la fotografía al borde de su identidad, pretendo hacer de cada obra una fuente de preguntas, empezando por cuestionar la naturaleza misma de cada imagen.

The way three-dimensional spaces and bodies mutate when they are translated to a flat surface was my first question to the photographic device. I used drawing and book editing as a means to understand this mutation and since then I use them in my photographic work. I left my native country in 2009. The distance created by this departure drew my attention to the travel geopolitics and later to the history behind the situation the made me migrate, which is the history of Colombia as a society. Through my different projects I try to understand how did we arrive to the place we are now, as a country. In this search I approach to history and specially the history of landscape, for land is and was the stage as well as a main character in our recent history, including our colonial past. My work considers notions as distance, photographic device, geography and its link to the destiny of its inhabitants, memory and the body as a carrier of history. I place my photographic work on the thin edge that separates a documentary from an artistic approach since I believe that the track of reality can be found as well in a processed image. Deconstructing the image through different actions, while trying to understand the photographed, is the unifying thread of my work.
