Description - New American Topographics by Inaki Bergera

As a photographer and architect, Inaki Bergera's enthusiasm for modern architecture shines through his entire oeuvre. Form is a key element and places appear naked, reduced to shapes and volumes. But human traces are ingeniously implied: landscape has been codified by industrial transformation and urban life, and in these limited places between the countryside and the city there is still room for poetry. Bergera's photographs might be universal, even neutral, but their content clearly speaks of North America in the new millennium. Detailed observation and a sense of astonishment define this author's extraordinary capacity to show things that would go unnoticed. He lets the intimate essence of places stand out as he transforms the most trivial things into unknown and unexpected ones. He surprises us with humorous remarks and associative games of visual sharpness, showing the beauty of a twisted tree in contrast with the severe lines of a rational facade, or the expressive strength of graffiti on a flaked wall.
