In that social crack, his photographs simultaneously reveal and provoke, his aesthetic procedure observes, crops, accentuates, obtains, and establishes its aim. And there, it fires up. Anonymous paradigms with their own mystery, the author doesn't tell us anything about their conception or context, leave us confronting our own phantasmal representations, creating a double game: Through concealment, it exposes. Twisted scenarios, military delusions, adhesions, raised hands, legacies, deafness, and blindness due to the proximity of contact; the refuge of ambiguous flags, farce, and faith construct and stage a new territory that's always present but nonetheless never seen as such until now" (Gabriela Liffschitz).
