Open Space Office

In the photographic series Open Space Office, by Tito Mouraz, the industrial landscapes - presented in abstract and fragmented images - are shown through a plastic acuity, reflected in his work by the use of light, colour, focus and clarity. Here the relation of the body to the landscape is central, highlighted through movement and time passed, seeking a three-dimensional contact with the place. The transience of these landscapes is shown in its constant transfigurations, through the edifying determination of humanity and the regenerative drive of nature itself.

The human presence is more evident in some photographs, when we are presented with images of its machines of transformation, indicating an activity from the past, or the pressing immediacy of the future. The resulting images present us with a provisional reality, slowly modifying its shape, and which lives, irreversibly, in a permanently changing state.
