Oswaldo Ruiz


Contemporary Photographers


When I first saw Oswaldo Ruiz’s illuminated houses at The Black Snapper, I was reminded of how Myoung Ho Lee isolated trees from their environments, the differences being, of course, the objects and the ways they are made to appear against the background. Ruiz’s approach adds more visual drama, even though, at the end, I’m not sure it succeeds to move beyond the gimmicky (which is my main objection about Lee’s work, too).
