Kraken

PrizeHonorable Mention
Entry Description

Kraken is born of our deep aversion to the cold and ruthless nature of certain murderers who acted a few years ago in Spain and contains a deep critique towards the media that insisted on the dissemination of his crimes over and over again. The images are photo-montages of beautiful landscapes in which some terrible acts have happened, such as poisoned candies. 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. It's an open project based on the collage in which we continue to work.
