Obra, Obra

Javier Talavera

“Obra Obra” is the construction of a construction. A photographic exercise that lasted as long as it took some workers to compose a concrete image.

For months, from the windows of my house, I observed the daily routines of the work of some workers transforming a limited landscape.

Interested in the plastic qualities of the forms that appeared, I began to document this active process from a precept that transcends the objective image.

Like another worker, I developed a repetitive and mechanical work plan. I created daily tasks of systematic capture, in an exploration of the idea of emptiness and infinity through the white.
