Juan Baraja

Juan Baraja’s work is derived from an unusual look at the quotidian character of architectural spaces. His photographs are the results of encounters with apparently static places that he manages to capture and visualize with subtlety, including industrial settings, which appear recurrently in the artist’s work.
His gaze and the time devoted to each shot seem to go against the accelerated rhythm of the contemporary image, evidencing a conscious attention to the particularities of architecture that are not evident to any eye, but that are presented with an unlimited richness waiting to be found.
