Somos espectadores de pantalla. Consumidores virtuales de arte contemporáneo. Visitamos museos, galerías, bienales y ferias sin necesidad de desplazarnos, gracias a profesionales que retratan piezas, exposiciones, instalaciones, performances, incluso arte sonoro. Su mirada se traduce en imágenes que sintetizan y transforman el hecho artístico y que nos abren las puertas a la curiosidad.

Quiénes son estos fotógrafos, qué proceso siguen para crear sus imágenes, cómo consiguen distinguirse en un reino de plataformas de digestión compulsiva de fotografias, por qué en el sistema del arte, siempre preocupado por la autoría, pasan tan desapercibidos que se necesita una lupa para encontrar su firma en los créditos.

La artista Cristina Garrido ha conversado con ocho de ellos (Roberto Ruiz, Peter Cox, Moritz Bernoully, Carlos Díaz Corona, PJ Rountree, Erika Barahona Ede, Ela Bialkowska y Andrea Rossetti). Esta es la historia -o al menos una de las historias- de la cara B del arte: la (invisible) figura del fotógrafo que documenta arte contemporáneo.

 

We are screen art spectators. Virtual consumers of contemporary art. Visitors to museums, galleries, biennials, and art fairs without having to move from where we are, thanks to professionals who portray artworks, exhibitions, installations, performances, and even sound art. Their ways of looking produce images that synthesize and transform the artworks, opening doors to curiosity.

Who are these photographers? How is the process they follow when creating images? How do they manage to stand out in the era of smartphones and platforms of compulsive consumption of images? Why in the art system, specially concerned about authorship, they are so unnoticed that one needs a magnifying glass to find their name in the credits?

Visual artist Cristina Garrido went to meet eight of them (Roberto Ruiz, Peter Cox, Moritz Bernoully, Carlos Díaz Corona, PJ Rountree, Erika Barahona Ede, Ela Bialkowska y Andrea Rossetti). This is the story –or at least one of the stories– of art’s B-side: the (invisible) figure of the photographer who documents contemporary art.
