River bank

The trilogy Study about movement explores the tensions that occur between figures, forms and color when summed together in layers, in an almost chancy way. The work tries to capture the vital and invisible forces, the pure movement, as the one present in a sensation. I chose two main tools to work with: the multiple exposure of layers in the same negative film and the use of primary colors.
River bank was the first work of the series. In this work I counterpoised the movement, light and color of two different spaces that are being seen by the same observer. A trip to Delta del Tigre, Buenos Aires and a highway trip. Both melt under an extreme slow motion of the images.
Post War man and Tides are the following works of the trilogy.
