Emptiness by Angélica García
- Caroline Kurze
Angélica García created these works around the topics of loneliness and emptiness. The pictures are not digitally manipulated, it’s all done by hand. Angélica takes a picture of her subject, prints it and treats it with her hands to transform it into a surreal, dreamy image before she takes a photo of the final result again.
Along with the series she wrote this: “Everyday I lose you… time, You are like water that slips away from me. Presence. Moment. Movement. How can I do to show how you run from me? How can I show that even if I freeze you, then you aren’t the same? How if I steal your essence, I don’t have you anyway? Strange presence… Emptiness.”
