“…there is really no such thing as a dull landscape or farm or town. None is without character, no habitat of man is without the appeal of the existence which originally created it…”

– J.B. Jackson

 

As both a cultural geographer and photographer, I am drawn to the beauty and wonder of everyday landscapes, buildings, and objects. Every place, location, or region reflects the history and culture behind it’s creation and of the value and importance once placed on them.

 

I hope my photographs will evoke memories, questions, and a curiosity of what these places are and may have been. And that, while these images were taken at fixed points in time, they also remind us of Heraclitus’ observation:

“All is in flux, nothing stays still.”

Jorge has a wonderful eye for the offbeat, the almost lost, the once-was. It is well worth your time to explore New Mexico and the West with him here.

Pour un Européen, cette galerie est un monde étrange, sans passé, un peu extra-terrestre. Un monde sévère, dur, mais beau et porteur d'une signification : La vie est un défi, une conquête sur l'adversité et en même temps une nostalgie, un respect du passé.

Pour un Européen, cette galerie est un monde étrange, sans passé, un peu extra-terrestre. Un monde sévère, dur, mais beau et porteur d'une signification : La vie est un défi, une conquête sur l'adversité et en même temps une nostalgie, un respect du passé. Un rappel que la nature, le passé des hommes, fait partie de notre présent et l'enrichit. Notre futur dépend de notre respect de tout notre passé. Le futur ne peut pas être vivant sans racines profondes. C'est ce que cette galerie nous rappelle. For a European, this gallery is a strange world, without a past, a bit extraterrestrial. A harsh, hard, but beautiful and meaningful world: Life is a challenge, a conquest over adversity and at the same time a nostalgia, a respect for the past. A reminder that nature, the past of men, is part of our present and enriches it. Our future depends on our respect for our entire past. The future cannot be alive without deep roots. That's what this gallery reminds us of.

I love your work. You have a very particular look on urban architecture that reminds me of the American hyperrealist painters of the 1970's. Excellent, beautiful and full of feeling :)
