Kraken

  • Photographer
    Rojo Sache

Kraken project shows murderers who acted a few years ago in Spain.
The images are photo-montages of beautiful landscapes in which some
terrible acts have happened. They are very theatrical photographs, as the
media, especially certain television, ended up becoming a true spectacle
these deaths. Kraken represents the loss of humanity, both by the
monsters who kill without showing compassion, as by the attitude of a
society, anesthetized by the media, which has become accustomed to the
horror.

Rojo Sache is the collective formed by the artists Rosa Isabel Vazquez (Madrid, 1971) and Jose Antonio Fernandez (Murcia, 1976).

They have performed lots of exhibitions both in Spain and internationally.

Their images have been credited with more than 80 prizes and awards in international competitions such as the IPA’s Tenth Annual Competition (USA), Pollux Awards of the International Gala Awards (UK), Critic’s award in the Biennale Genovarte 2013 (Genoa, Italy), Best Nature Photography (USA), WIPI (USA), International Color Awards (USA), Glanzlichter (Germany), Asferico International Nature Photography Competition (Italy), Premio Combat Prize (Italy), GDT European Wildlife Photographer of the Year (Germany), International Loupe Awards (Australia), Creative Asia Photography Awards 2012 (China), Fine Art Photography Competition (UK), Narava (Slovenia), and spanish awards (11 National Professional Photography Awards), among others.
