Jorge Llacay

I walk slowly, like someone who comes from so far that he does not expect to arrive. (J.L.BORGES)
My work is coming from the restless journey of squinting for years, plus the new notion of calming down with a still gaze in order to understand.

Photographs are, in this sense, a future of other pasts that allow the observer to find what is forgotten or blurred in their sensations. The emptiness, absence and stillness inhabit as helplessness and are the expressions of that loss that is portrayed in each image.
The photos are born helpless, until they are completed with the memory that appears in each observer and waiting for a new oblivion to release them in their next future. Thus they play with time so that it produces in us the doubt that its false accuracy deserves.
The photographs are those translations, they are “writings of light that attack the shadow more prodigious than meteors”*
