Umbral

  • Photographer
    Aldebaran Solares


“Umbral” is the spanish word for threshold: The entrance; the limit
or the beginning of something, that could be a vortex to a black
hole, or just decay.

This project explores the materiality of photography and the
relationship between memory and image. It was necessary that the
beam of light went into the vortex; through the film, and made
contact whit the photographic surface.
