Knows Alberto Sanchez: «Every year we are leaving in the winter in Spain and shoot. Aragon, Castilla, Andalusia, Murcia, Valensiyskoe society… All, who goes to Spain in the summer, litsezreyut her scorched. And in winter a bright saturated colors country with a large number of invoices. In the exhibition we tried to combine several lines. first – the development of perception of Spain traveler. He's starting to be born images. At first, the most simple landscapes. Then «cut one» sky. Man begins to pay attention to the geometric features of the landscape. As a result, all the leaves in the imagery, as in the photo ip Andalusian villages, and even a therapist.
Another line – real culture. As Spain is reflected in the textures and materials, in, how a person relates to his own work. It is very symptomatic. Spaniards are working like ants. Aesthetics have them arises from a natural internal process. We are always amazed, they put a stone, how to use cement. Spanish laborers do not make for yourself aesthetic problems. And it turns out unique and brilliant! Very exciting time – how nature is connected with human labor. This Spanish handwriting, you will not find in Italy, nor in France, either in Germany. It `s that, As a person, let's, plow. What he is paving bands, which draws the boundaries between fields.
We come in quite fantastic landscape, and people, living there, surprised to ask: «And what you're shooting here? Field??? What is there to shoot?». For their field – a void, in which something has to grow. They plow in the fiction, wherein all changes every minute, and he did not notice. And they are the creators of this landscape»!
