Mashup (Chaos A.D.)
My desire of a harmonic (and disharmonious) junction between two images that may be similar in their sense, plasticity and interest comes from what is done in music mashups. The aim is to create curiosity in the minds of those who see them. It turns out not to be an easy thing to do. We see numerous situations in cities, countries and in different locations. Eventually we record these experiences. In my case as a photographer the chance to register is even greater because I reach out to these experiences, and years later when watching the photos, I see a certain contradictory communication between the images. What made me intuit were the possibilities in the dialogues between the images! It’s an idea of a narrative in the exchange and contrast between two or more (photographic) records, ranging from discomfort to subtlety.

This work ascends creating sublimental messages about music.
Think about politics, economics, sociology and religion. Your way! But think!
