Ellas, en la idílica fotografía de Alexander Caballero Díaz

 

Alexander Caballero Díaz es un fotógrafo del Perú que usa la cámara como medio de conocimiento y de integración.

Al juzgar las imágenes aquí presentes, en su posición de espectador, ojo detrás del lente de la cámara, conoce y fantasea en un mundo femenino que resulta ser sinónimo de lo bello. No es un ojo fetichista ni uno que interrumpa el espacio privado, sino un ojo que romantiza y ofrece un mundo de melancolía.

Caballero Díaz convierte al objeto y al sujeto fotografiado en algo bello. Reproduce lo que ve y lo que sueña, encarna el mundo al que pertenece, pero que no conoce en su totalidad sin el proceso fotográfico. El mundo de sus mujeres es el mundo de su memoria y de su identidad.

La fotografía como instrumento de conocimiento integra sensibilidades y universos íntimos. Revela idilios que, con el transcurrir del tiempo, consolidan una memoria que felizmente transgrede su reverso, que es el olvido.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Alexander Caballero Díaz is a Peruvian photographer that made use of the camara as an instrument of knowledge, understanding, and integrating.

In these ten photographs Alexander shows that positioning himself as a spectator, his eye in front of the camera learns and fantasies about a feminine world. It is a space where the feminine ideals are an expression of beauty. Alexander’s eye is not a fetish one, it is not an eye that interrupts a private space, but it is an eye that romanticizes and melancholies his world.

As creator with photography media, Alexander transforms the object and/or the photographic subject in something beautiful, in something more than a substance. He reproduces what he sees and dreams, as a photographer he incarnates his personal world but that he does not know in its totality without the process of photography. The world of his woman is the one of his memory

and his identity.

By this means, photography is aim by Alexander as an instrument of knowledge and understanding. The photographic camera is the master for the photographer itself, it is the result, the image itself, the memory, and the instrument to expose an idyllic space.
