“Photography must express what words cannot express. Photography is a silent art that grows strong in silence. The photographer does not speak; the photographer only points out. Pointing out is to isolate and delimit the world. Photography is the fragmentary art par excellence. We do not see the world as it is, but as we are. A photograph that is defined beforehand is a dead photograph. A living photograph is one that is created and actualized by gaze.
Art records the seizures of the social. We must account for the events of our time. Photographing the archive, resampling its documents for a stab in the unconscious. Doing an archeology of the present. Exploring the photographic dimension of movement, where overlays, sparkles, and unexpected analogies appear. Marginal elements emerge as untimely interferences, contiguities that generate metaphors: images of images in a double detachment from the real.
We are in the maelstrom of memory; in the hyperreal realm of simulacra. We see the phantasmagoria of a managed world, the dreams of instrumental reason. In the era of emptiness, mass disinformation becomes ubiquitous. Is this the real? Then, the artistic practice produces a paradox: the aesthetic paroxysm leads us to self-awareness.” Adrian Pelegrin.
The Hiperreal Archive Project
The Hyperreal Archive is a visual representation of the dynamic relationship between the real and the unreal, the tangible and the illusory. Each photograph embodies the paradoxical nature of existence by capturing fleeting moments suspended in time and inviting viewers to question their own perceptions of reality.
The project provides a profound examination of our collective consciousness. It challenges viewers to confront their own perceptions of reality and prompts them to question the thin line that separates truth from fiction. I seek to expose the fragility of our perceived reality through the deliberate construction of images, inviting viewers to reevaluate their notions of truth and enter the realm of the surreal.
My artistic journey has been one of constant exploration, development, and reinvention. Each step has shaped me into the artist and critic I am today, from my humble beginnings as a self-taught photographer to my collaboration with esteemed professionals and the realization of my own creative vision. The Hyperreal Archive exemplifies my unwavering dedication to artistic expression and my insatiable desire to expand the boundaries of perception. I hope that my work will inspire and motivate others to embark on their own transformative journeys of self-discovery and artistic investigation.

Here are some frequently asked questions
Don’t shy away from using this helpful block to guide your website users to useful pages.
What is an author print?
An author print is one made under the supervision and control of the artist. He determines the color levels of the photograph, paper, inks, finishing, etc. All author prints are signed.
What is a Limited Edition?
A Limited Edition always has a limited number of prints. For example: if we have an image that has been edited to 7″ x 10″ and limited to 15 units, this means that this particular image will never be printed more than 15 times into that size. Limited Editions are created to artificially inflate prices for speculative purposes.
What is an Open Edition?
Open Editions do not have any limitations regarding the size or the number of prints made. They belong to a democratic free market and are consistent with the natural reproducibility of the photographic medium. As it is a product with an unlimited supply, its price is significantly reduced.
How are the author prints signed?
All of my author prints are signed on the back. The signature is made with a graphite pencil, ensuring maximum durability.
What print sizes do you offer?
For all my Open Editions the largest print size will be 7″ x 10″ (17,78 x 25,4 cm). Image sizes may vary slightly depending on the format of each photo. Each print carries an additional 2″ (5,08 cm) white paper border. For example, if you order a 7″ x 10″ image, the outer cut size of the paper will be 11″ x 14″ (27,94 x 35,56 cm).

Modern art, inherently abstract, delves into the realm of ideas, exemplifying cerebral art. The crisis within contemporary art, embodied by Andy Warhol, embraces nullity and insignificance, challenging traditional aesthetics. Though risking impostors, a delicate balance is urged, recognizing authentic brilliance. Despite philosophical dilemmas, contemporary art mirrors societal values, serving as a cultural barometer.
