About the work

Fernando Maselli is an Argentine photographer and designer who works on different aspects of the landscape through his photographs. In this exhibition Fernando presents two pieces that are part of a series of projects that he carried out around the city of Madrid. In these series he worked on aspects of the city such as its people and its architecture.

In front of us we find the work Espacios planificados 04, which was enlarged so that you can observe it in more detail. In it Fernando shows us his interest in residential architecture, the urban landscape and the human factor, the community. These elements have been highlighted from a digital collage of spontaneous moments photographed by the artist in dormitory neighborhoods on the outskirts of Madrid.

The piece is shown as a conversation between the urban environment and the human environment, both complement each other and are part of each other. In large cities, human beings tend to isolate themselves from the giant masses of buildings around them, but in this photograph Fernando presents them as one. Do you feel identified with this encounter? How is your interaction with the neighbors of your community?

Plaza Mayor 02 is based on the urban space and the human being as a unifying element. The work is a digital collage of photographs taken by the artist. We can see an aerial view of the Plaza Mayor in Madrid and how the artist has placed the pedestrians so that they intersect with the grid on the ground. We see a band playing instruments on the public plaza, an organic interaction of the inhabitants of the city, where glances, conversations and even feelings meet.

In the piece we can see how the shadows, the colors of people’s clothes and the geometry of the square stand out. All to represent the urban landscape and how it interacts directly with those around it. What have been the best interactions you’ve had in public spaces? What meaning does the square in your hometown have for you?
