Barro Rojo [red mud] is Javier Marquerie Bueno’s photographic project, which documents from the present the Battle of Brunete, held between 6 and 25 July 1937. Sixteen photographs taken in the same place, the same day and at the same time 78 years later bear witness to the passage of time and the changing world in which we live. Images that show how contemporary society turns its back to the past.

Javier Marquerie Bueno bio.

Born in Madrid in 1969, his first contact with photography happens at 16, becoming from then on part of the family's amateur photo-lab. He focuses his career on video documentation and creation, which he gradually abandons in the early 2000s to re-embrace photography as the central element of his working and artistic life. Having ties with scenic creation and documentation, he has recorded the evolution of artists such as Rodrigo Garcia or Angelica Lidell, whose works have acquired a global reputation.

HIs most recent work is related with the spaces he has or is currently inhabiting on the one hand, and the Spanish Civil War on the other. Both come together in the series "Madrid, que bien resistes" – 2013 and exhibited in PHotoESPAÑA 16 – and "Barro rojo" –2015 and exhibited in PHotoESPAÑA2017". In the first one, he presents a dialogue between wartime and present day Madrid, in collage form and using rephotography. In "Barro rojo" he revisits the battlefields of the Brunete Battle (1937), using chronological order to narrate his story, and being consistent with the real dates and times, only 78 years later.

At the moment, he combines his work in travel and sports magazines and photography for corporations, with upcoming projects, all while trying to set up a forum for photographers
