“Looking infinitely”. Some food for thought by Ana Bolívar

“Looking infinitely”. Some food for thought by Ana Bolívar | Photography Now | Scoop.it
A world saturated with images

Nowadays, both professionals and the general public can know via Internet the work of any author without necessarily getting it through an agency, a curator or an editor; and without any barrier preventing them from knowing his production. We can access an image regardless of its provenance and the way in which it has been created. While this can be very positive, it can also result in hasty and uncritical reviews in which everything goes and where specific coordinates that the viewer can use or ignore are missing.

Inge Morath Award Recipient, 2011

They left their lives in the very wounds they had created for themselves.
- Virgil (Roman poet, 70BC – 19BC)

To jeopardize existence for existence itself: ‘Bees’ records a marginalized group of people in China, who, faced with chaos, violence, alienation and irredeemable loss in life, feel propelled to leave physical traces and markings on their bodies, in order to preserve and corroborate a pure and sensitive mind from within.
