Mario Pires's curator insight, September 11, 2014 7:28 AM

"And while it’s absolutely possible to appreciate this project in a surface way, the real appeal of Hernandez’s Rodeo Drive is that it’s a greater commentary on this social landscape, as well as the interaction between watcher and watched. Promenaders on Rodeo Drive, locals and tourists alike from all ends of the socio-economic spectrum, know they’ll be on a sort of pedestrian catwalk when walking these high-rent streets."

García de Marina: Still Lifes | art | Scoop.it

I  appreciate when people see the world differently, and Spanish photographer García de Marina happens to see the world with humor and possibility.  His images celebrate “the greatness of the everyday” making us consider household objects in a whole new way. I appreciate the simplicity and humor in his images.
