Andrés Rozo Samer
Talking about his work Andrés Rozo Samer says ‘my main interest as a fine art photographer is to build metaphors and narratives about our relationship with nature and propose a reflection on the unique imprint and energy that each family embeds in their everyday objects. My method is based on observation, I am constantly looking for visual stimulus and the hidden poetry of matter. After an idea and a mental image are solid, I search for the subject and the most appropriated light. Normally I work on black and white because my focus is on shape, texture and detail. My bodies of work are interconnected with each other through the articulation of the elements of design and the exploration of what lies hidden in plain sight. I seek to provide a rewarding visual experience to the observer with an immersion into our society and the beauty of nature.’
Culinary Astronomy is a reflection on the unique imprint and energy that individual families embed in their everyday household objects and appliances.
Moving away from the conventions of traditional documentary photography, the images take on an air of abstraction. Andrés Rozo Salmer says about his project: “Over many years of use marks and stains condense on a surface the experiences and customs of a familiar world, which constitutes the aura of the work. Therefore, this trace is what I seek to represent and interpret; allowing the viewer to look deeply from a microscopic to a macroscopic level, discovering unexplored planets.”
