Unai Mateo - I take photos to say things
Photographic practice is for me both a physical experience as well as an emotional one. A path to my unconscious through my instincts. I can not conceive photography as something that does not represent my deepest concerns and emotions. Emotions that I let out through the physical experience of shooting the camera in silence.
I do believe that the purest form of reality is the one captured led by impulses and instincts. That is why I don't like to think in concepts before creating the images. I want the photograph itself to be the one unveiling the concept. In other words; The unconscious revealing the truth.
