María Rodríguez’s photographs revolve around her closest environs, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. She seeks an unexpected shadow, a surprising combination of colours, a unique structure in the land and the traces that time, climate change, geographic location and action leave on the city. Through photography, María Rodríguez engages in dialogue with the city. In her images, she creates an imaginary city which reflects the happy times and surprising and tragic events of Las Palma like sediments of experience. Thus emerges a subjective cityscape, an inner imaginary landscape outside in the real city. Her images are an invitation to approach the city with unprejudiced empathy, a curiosity capable of seeing before judging. This is linked to the desire to find a different way to deal with the built space, a way that showcases the everyday, which is usually ignored among prestigious monuments and an enthusiasm for the new.
