“20 portraits of contemporary architecture” by Pablo Gómez Tribello

The exhibition shows a selection of representative faces of architecture in Spain –including Alberto Campo Baeza, BMIAA Winner 2015 and Jesús Mª Aparicio Guisado, BMIAA Prize President– in a photographic series in which the format, light, composition and portrait play a decisive role in giving us details on how do these architects compose space.

The work has been fully realized in analog medium, black and  white 120mm format film which has been manually developed;  however, through digital processing, the photographer  adopts a post-process that makes better use of the resources of the analog film.

Both this and the selection of the 6×7 format, as well as the style and lighting technique are carefully designed to serve only the spatial concept portrayed. It is possible to speak of a conceptual style that searches to narrate only by the means of the portrait.
