    photography

    Cristina Sáez is a visual artist whose current practice includes photography, walk-in camera obscura installations, animation, video and collage. She is concerned with the ways in which humans perceive and relate to the environment, in particular with the alienation between man and nature that characterizes everyday life in an increasingly urbanized world. Her practice investigates the ways in which nature is perceived and represented through different technologies and across disciplines and cultures, with a particular focus on the relationship between worldviews and modes of visual representation.

    Born in Bilbao (Spain), Cristina took up photography after graduating in Psychology and moving to London in 2001. She completed an MA in Photography and Urban Cultures from Goldsmiths University of London (2006) and was awarded a Visiting Fellowship at the Centre for Visual Anthropology, Goldsmiths (2009 - 2010). In recent years she has taken part in exhibitions, festivals and residencies in Spain, Italy, Portugal, UK, India and Morocco.

    "I can't draw and I can't paint.
    I lack the patience required for sculpture and screen printing.
    I am not too good with words and I am
    the musical equivalent of colour blind.

    For many years the camera gave me a language,
    it was my salvation, my tool,
    my closest friend.
    Together we captured fragments of the world
    and we spoke
    with light
    about the things that people did not want to hear.

    Then one day, analogue photography began to die
    and we were left at the mercy of millions and trillions of intangible pixels
    that only exist
    as long as the batteries last.
    Pixels laid down on the imaginary surface of the screen
    by the cold hands of an algorithm
    I will never be able to speak to.

    In the digital age, these camera-less pictures have given me a new hope,
    a new language to speak
    about that which can not be put into words.
    And now I sleep better knowing
    that when the power is gone,
    I will still be able to scream
    in the dark."
