ORLANDO DE LA ROSA
Vorágine, by Orlando De la Rosa, arises from the author's imperative need to name the hidden facts of his own history. Thus, through GO and back and forth between reality and fiction, he tells the story of a family after the father's murder.
Through the process of constructing and editing the images that make up this book, the photographer explores a series of events that question the limits of morality and where human nature reflects its indomitable character: a violent land where the heat suffocates, characters fleeing from the past, skins that rub against each other until they hurt and an uncontrollable desire that ignores blood.Vorágine is now presented as an exhibition, offering a new reading and transferring the complex narrative of this work to the space.
