My immediate.

A world of bits and bytes. Isn’t it hard for the common people to tell success posing profile pictures and happy fairy tales from true life?

For me it’s mandatory.

At my long days at home (I don’t go out that much you know) I have to spend time away from the internet world and specially social media. For the good of my mental health I have to keep a connection with the real world and be aware of my surroundings. An act of making links with the things and phenomena around me helps me cope with shadows, and what better way to deal with shadows than with light?, so observation and sensing of light, things and beings in my proximity are something enjoyable or at least a soothing of uneasiness in my day to day.

This contact is best expressed in a recently started essay I call “My immediate”. A lot of fresh images can fall into this essay but also many of my older images I’ve made at home. Here I share a few ones.

If the rain was not enough… a shaken reality.


I made this image on the streets close to the downtown of Mexico City at the end of August. Just a street scene. At first I just liked the aesthetic feel that blur gives the image, in line with my not always so sharp connection with the people, the city. Now, after the earthquake of last September 19 it takes on a fuller, deeper meaning, now it’s not just me. In this city and many other smaller cities and towns in nearby states everyday life, everyday’s news, everyone’s world, suddenly it all faded, the underground has shattered our sense of reality, to be never again the same.
