Andres Marcolla is an Argentinian photographer artist based in Buenos Aires.
I am one of those people who think that art is everywhere, among us at all times; implicit, hidden, waiting to be discovered. Photography is the ideal medium to unmask the artistic potential of the world around us.
I'm interested in color and shapes, but also textures, both natural and urban. For some reason, I feel the same attraction for natural beauty as for the ¨beautiful ugliness¨ of the city.
I use the camera as a tool to capture my most primal interest in the pictorial, trying to achieve compositional synthesis.
My recent photo project "Concrete Resilience" aims to explore the adverse and perhaps heroic place that the natural world occupies in the city surroundings.
Life, that vital energy, always finds its way, even growing from the concrete.
