Pep Ventosa


Contemporary Photographers

Digitally layering photos of the same subject has been explored by Idris Khan or Jason Salavon, but when looking at those images - as cool as they might look at first glance - I often ask myself: And now? Having seen all the Becher water towers or Playboy centerfolds in one image, what am I to take away from it? Pep Ventosa’s The Collective Snapshot is another such set of montages, which, in the end, for might prove most lasting. Combining snapshots of famous buildings or sights, taken by different people, is a bit akin to creating some sort of collective memory. Pep Ventosa’s other work is digital, too, but mostly decorative.
