Campamento de Invierno (Winter camp)

These series of images were commissioned by the independent curator Mane Adaro for the first Valparaiso International Photography Festival (www.fifv.cl).

The images strive to find something that would identify the city, beyond the images built as a souvenir for travellers. Thus, the series attempt to collect those day-to-day elements whose commonplace condition makes them disappear from the constructed and grandiose official picture to become invisible landscapes.

The kiosks, closed and off-season (and thus out of sight for tourists) are shown within a fixed frontal and almost symmetrical framing. This formal element unifies the series and translates the spaces into the two-dimensional images as a kind of geometric and visual inventory of the port city.
