About the Book
The Images in this book are reproductions of other photos, magazine pages, drawings and iconographic signs that at some point decorated the walls of a prison in Mexico.
The photographed objects are remnants of a particular visual culture where I intend to convey the illusion of proximity and the sensation of contact they provoke, which has to do with its insinuating textures, with evoking tactile experiences and with the play of surfaces doubling .
The photographed surfaces, surface of the objects and, in consequence, surface of the photos leave a space open for the viewers interpretation, which turns every photo into a re-interpretation of an icon previously manipulated and that presents that icon as a residue, print or remnant.
