The ways in which photography has historically been involved in the technology of power-knowledge have become the main objetive of my recent research. My work is bound to query the identity of the photographic medium through a dual approach: on the one hand, analyzing the role of photography within a regulatory framework, which defines and constructs meaning, and in turn, portraying the political scenario resulting from this framework. Thus, questioning the dimension of our gaze.
