Poster for El mundo del subconciente - fotografia
[The Subconscious World]
Provided by the artist - Jose Martinez Verea
It took me about three years to complete this portfolio, thirty images that i called "the world of the subconscious", this work is about my own work experience with a psychoanalysis therapy.
I did this job because i wanted to do something else with all those feelings, tears, thoughts Etc. So i mould them into a photographic concept.
I remember how some photos emerge almost by themselves, but others... Well. I traveled into the memory lane to build them - some of these memories are nice others are not.
And in order to take the final shot i went into long researches, scouting for the right material, physical pain, risk, happiness, sadness, etc.
Sometimes a photo took me four hours to get it done and sometimes three or five months.
Each one of these pieces has a history, a vibration, a part of me, nothing is left to the chance.
I like hearing people talking about this work, very often one single piece represents a lot in their own lives, finally we all go by the hand in mental issues, and like the said: "in madness and poetry we all have our share".
