Eres un fantasma

The children of the village, too, would shout with joy whenever he approached. He assisted at their sports, made their playthings, taught them to fly kites and shoot marbles, and told them long stories of ghosts, witches, and Indians. Whenever he went dodging about the village, he was surrounded by a troop of them, hanging on his skirts, clambering on his back, and playing a thousand tricks on him with impunity; and not a dog would bark at him throughout the neighborhood.
— Washington Irving, Rip Van WInkle, p. 11.

You're a Ghost is the result of the gesture of photographing objects and traces of human activity in the public space. This behavior is derived from my obsesion for the photographic medium, a process of grievance for recent deaths and separations in my personal life, that has led to this lonesome act of urban drift that has put me in the position of the aimless wanderer.

 

Eres un fantasma es el resultado de estar fotografiando desde hace un par de años objetos y rastros en el espacio público. Esta conducta deriva de mi obsesión por el medio fotográfico y de estar inmerso cotidianamente en una deriva urbana que refleja la actitud del caminante vagabundo.

Para mí, el espacio público es un oráculo, el cual busco descifrar a través de estas imágenes. Éstas otorgan visibilidad y sirven de evidencia de la actualidad de mi persona y los lugares que habito y frecuento.
