Mario Pires's curator insight, June 23, 1:17 AM

"I am not very worried about the overabundance of images in today’s society.  The vast majority of these photos are snapshots whose lifespan is very short – a few minutes or less. Like a mosquito.

They are shot, shown and almost immediately die, forgotten.

These photos resemble a conversation, rather than an actual process by which a visual archive is made. I am interested in creating a visual archive that is also a reflection of my own person, who I am in this age and time and the people and place I am photographing with the most honesty and depth that I can muster.

And that does not come from a snapshot. It requires a lot of time and immersion and connectivity."

“The name Anthropology is no coincidence, we want to make it our mission to constantly study and evaluate consumer data, interactions and trends. Meaningful marketing has to be born out of really understanding who you are speaking to and what makes them tick. The study of humankind… this is what we are all about,” states Maker
