Juan Diego Valera
Observe the state of confusion and permanent alert of a disoriented photographer in an unknown place. Immersed in uncontrollable situations. Evoking apparently common landscapes and spaces. Here, the human factor is used as a reiterative ingredient of straightforward images from an author unable to separate the emotional from the objective. Photographs desperately taken during a 28 day inquiry in Ciudad de Guatemala.
Juan Diego Valera is one of the founding members of the publishing house Ca L’Isidret Edicions. He studied Fine Arts in Córdoba (Argentina), and in 2001 he moves his residence to Spain where he develops his creative process. From then on he has worked in several projects such as De mis fragilidades (2008), La Càmera gran (2011), Movimientos de Suelo (2010), Coma (La Kursala, 2011), Bitácora (Standard Illustrated Books, 2012) and Diente de Chucho (Ca l’Isidret Edicions, 2014).
