Frank Diaz’s Series: The Lost Road

.

Treat yourself to Frank Diaz’s photographs in this wonderful passionate article in Dodho Magazine. Frank’s work moves me deeply. Each image is a novella by itself.

“As a conceptual artist, I use photography to explore who we are, how we perceive and the ways in which we live.

The photographs I create are what I call cinematic narrative photomontages, fictions meant to seem like snapshots of “reality.” The implication is that our reality is created through the limitations of our perceptions. Photomontaging allows me greater flexibility in controlling the visualization of each series’ concept. I’m not attempting to find that unique moment and then document it. What I am trying to do is conceptualize that “unique moment,” then create it photographically and give it a seamless quality that “fools” the viewer into seeing each piece as a single coherent image.”

“…With night and day coming and going out of sequence, this series is a journey with no beginning and no end—a kind of “marvelous reality” or as Alejo Carpentier  (the magical realist writer) mentioned, the seizing of the mystery that breathes behind all things.”
