Contemporary Photographers


“Pesca Milagrosa, is the name given by Colombian guerillas to their suddenly erected blockades on motorways. There they choose which of the people stopped will be kidnapped. Taking this inhumane roulette game as a point of departure, the appropriated and digitally manipulated photographs in this work, question the media representation of the disappeared, missing or kidnapped persons from both South and North America.” - Carlos Motta
