Challenging us to think about the way we view time, Pep Ventosa creates photo collages of famous cities around the world that resemble surreal paintings. By assembling dozens to several hundred separate photographs together, he turns life’s moments into puzzle pieces. It’s as if he reconstructs a whole new reality.
As his website states, “His work is focused on an exploration of the medium itself – deconstructing and reconstructing photographic images to create new visual experiences.”
A unique narrative is made, “one that never actually happened, where the whole travels mysteriously further than what the camera documented. Part memory, part imagination, not unlike the way we see.”
