STILL LIFE PORTRAIT OF THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR
To look at these objects is to face our history face to face. Who is not curious to fix their eyes on the trigger of the Astra pistol that precipitated the beginning of the Spanish Civil War?
All the objects of this work "were there" when some of the most important events of the Spanish Civil War happened.
This is the fascinating thing about these photographs. The objects must be "portrayed". Beauty and content must maintain a subtle balance. Photography has the power to turn them into documents, into icons of themselves, into the memory of History.
