The Book

"Body on paper” is a project composed of a photobook and a solo performance on stage. This book is the outcome of the first artist residency in Japan based on pictures taken in Tokyo and Kyoto . The solo on stage is the second part of this journey. These two formats conceptualize a timeline, a virtual space that connects two points of view, two moments. While also allowing the possibility of approaching or distancing, of touching or contemplating a lasting image and seeing it distorted through memory. Body on paper is built as a project of subtlety and fracture, fragility and strength that we establish within ourselves and with the things that surround us.

Manuel Rodríguez develops his work through different artistic disciplines and formats that revolve around dance and visual arts. Therefore his creations emerge through different practices and creative dynamics, where special attention is given to the process making. His interest and reflection in the performative act itself entails a continuous exercise of reinventionof the body and space, by means of confrontation with the object (sculptural, material, installation, lighting, sound ...). His practices propose a contemplative catharsis from the external view, as an essential tool for the true and profound understanding, like in a photograph taken by "overexposure".In this context physicality is activated by manifesting altered states of hypersensitivity in the body,becoming a connexion, aesthetic and conceptual tool.

FRACTAL

Fractal is an artist book, created out of thousands of police mugshots of anonymous prostitutes arrested in the United States. They were collected on Internet in 2012 by Antoine d’Agata who pursued this research at a time he couldn’t photograph anymore. The logics of these series fit the author's perspective on the hidden nature of institutional violence in modern democratic societies which he describes, throughout his work, as a mutant form of economical genocide

It’s not how a photographer looks at the world that is important. It’s their intimate relationship with it.

The Book

"Anoche Subió Dios a Casa" is the most intimate and sincere body of work photographer Hugo de la Rosa has realized to date. A declaration of principles in which the author pays a transparent and blunt homage to beauty, solitude and above all, company. A book charged with nostalgia in which both the people that were at his home and those that were present through his computer screen are equally considered guests. 

This books comes in a hard black folder with a signed limited photography by the author.

Hugo de la Rosa, 1978. Photographer.Madrid, Barcelona, London. Hugo has worked over 15 years as a professional photographer and during this time he has never stopped reflecting and developing his own particular vision of the world using as reference and inspiration his own personal experience.

 

Proof of this is his recent work for Audi (Germany) or his continuous collaboration as official campaign photographer for the fashion firm Martin Lamothe, work which he combines with his own artistic practice and which he has exhibited in Madrid, Barcelona, Paris or Budapest as well as being published in distinguished publications both spanish and international.

His personal way of utilizing the photographic medium, dinamites the barriers between fashion and artistic photography creating a language all of his own.
