MACK –Antonio M. Xoubanova

Preview

With 1700 acres of greenery, the Casa de Campo in Madrid is one of the largest urban parks in Europe, five times larger than Central Park in New York. This work by Spanish photographer Antonio Xoubanova is an ancient fable told in images. From 2008 to 2012, he wandered the paths and tree-covered plains of the Casa de Campo, photographing the walkers and park regulars playing and relaxing, the animals and the objects. Conceived as a fairy tale, the book is composed of five chapters dealing with love, death, fleeting moments, symbols and the lack of direction. By bringing these people and animals together in this natural setting, the viewer comes to see reality as fiction. With great skill and a touch of humor, Xoubanova also comments on the economic troubles of his country and its citizens, who find solace here away from the responsibilities of city life. Impenetrable and mysterious, Casa de Campo takes readers on a lovely, dreamlike stroll.
