The Detail Hunter, 2012-present
My bicultural background has given me, on the one hand, with the enriching possibility to belong to two cultures. And, on the other hand with a prolonged feeling of betweenness. The unfamiliarity I felt at first living in Rotterdam, translated into the way I started to make work. In a distant way I started to photograph what surrounded me. The equipment I worked with, first with my cellphone and later a point-and-shoot camera, allowed me to remain unnoticed as a result of the amateur look of it. These photographic registrations allowed me a space to discover and understand my new position in The Netherlands in contrast to Spain. How can a (new) culture influence the way we move and interact with our direct surroundings? I have archived these observations under the name The Detail Hunter (2012-present), becoming an important source for new works.
