Photography and text by Jano Soto Cossio
I work from my everyday life, doing a crossing between documental shooting and street shooting, without planning the scene. I’m looking for the spontaneity of the shoot, and makimg that the shoot speaks by itself.
The photographic act in the moment, it’s no the protagonist. It’s generated like mechanically, with the passage of time, it acquires a deeper dimension, photographed moments resurface, and with them, the memories. The reason for the choice and the randomness of the result.
In the images do not show me, but talk about me through them, my friends, the places where we move, the nonsense of the local routine that is manifested in this self-destructive way of dealing with it. Drugs, alcohol , skate and vandalism are the way. Scratches , noise and movement in the shoots exalt the procedure.
They were made between December 2014 and february 2015 in the town of Paillaco in analog format 35mm. color, using a compact point and shoot second-hand camera and defeated 100 asa film.
