Today we learn about the events that happen in the world in a mediated, delayed, fragmented way. Aware of this, Pía Elizondo starts from this disjunct of experience to make this series on Aleppo. In January 2017, the photographer extracted a set of stills from the videos broadcast online and on French television. The selection is more instinctive and subjective than rational, a set of images akin to each other because of their same sensible texture, black and white, and their use of vignette as a frame. They encourage us to experience the image from the inside, as an internal, affective and compassionate event more than from the outside, from media imagery.
