Maria De Las Casas–


My images are based in the concept of story telling. I see photography as an opportunity to tell a story through images. We live in impermanence. That is why I am interested in narrative. To me each project is a lasting visual story that will provide a fleeting glimpse of the past.
The last body of photographs I’ve shot has come through sudden, unexpected changes –accidents of life. Life is surging in random waves in the midst of which I am yearning to impose some order, sense of history, sequence and thereby, logic. The men and women from rural Spain abandoned their stone houses for better fortunes, on earth or in Heaven. It appears they left suddenly, through accident or unexpected turn of events. But they left their anima on chairs, utensils and clothes, celebrated only by dust and spiderwebs, the residue of their life force is soothing to me as a manifestation of meaning, history.

María, 46, is from Venezuela, now she lives in Cantabria, Spain.
