Lorena Guillén Vaschetti
Lorena Guillen Vaschetti refrained from full views that could reveal the faces and identities of the dancing aborigines when she took her photographs in Australia. Lorena turned this apparent limitation into a strength, proving how much the half can be more than the whole. Instead of ethnographic exactitude we get documentary subjectivity; instead of totality we get detail. The stylistic device called synecdoche — pars pro toto — on the whole seems to be the mirror with which she condenses reality into symbol.
