  • 本系列独具特色,照片以艺术家在家中和周围环境中拍摄的日常瞬间为主。这位艺术家在约翰内斯堡生活了10多年,专注于拍摄日常瞬间、姿势、物体和植物,以表达情感和焦虑,暗示照片拍摄时的历史背景和政治暗流。这些照片聚焦于色彩和阴影,为我们呈现出既诱人又虚幻的图像,令我们不禁质疑眼前之景,以及我们选择看到此景的方式。
       胡安·奥兰蒂亚 (Juan Orrantia) 创作的摄影作品与艺术表现、感知和历史问题有关。 为此,他探索了摄影与色彩、干预和相册互动的不同模式。他的作品得到了收藏家和机构的认可,其中包括史密森尼非洲艺术博物馆、蒂尔尼基金会、和Calouste Gulbenkian基金会艺术图书馆。并且,他还因出版书籍而获奖,包括蒙得维的亚摄影奖。
      This series is unique in that the photographs feature everyday moments taken by the artist in his home and surroundings. The artist, who has lived in Johannesburg for over 10 years, focuses on everyday moments, poses, objects and plants to express emotions and anxieties, suggesting the historical context and political undercurrents at the time the photographs were taken. Focusing on colour and shadows, these photographs present us with images that are both seductive and unreal, making us question the scene before us and the way we choose to see it.
       Juan Orrantia creates photographic works that relate to issues of artistic expression, perception and history. To this end, he explores different modes of photographic interaction with colour, interventions and albums. His work has been recognised by collectors and institutions including the Smithsonian Museum of African Art, the Tierney Foundation, and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation Art Library. And, he has received awards for his published books, including the Montevideo Photography Award.
