  • About the artwork

    The serendipity, the fortuitous, an unexpected and fortunate finding, is the starting point of the story of Victor Lustig. He arrived in Paris in 1925 from the United States, where he had dedicated himself to professional fraud.

    Ready to continue with his career, the idea for a new blow would come to him completely haphazardly: as he looked throught a newspaper he came across a news item that lamented the deterioration of the Eiffel Tower and the maintenance costs that this entailed for the Town hall of the city. Immediately launched one of the biggest scams in history: the sale of the Iron Lady.

    Chance, surprise and game baste the memories that Lustig evokes from his cell years later: a kaleidoscope formed by vital fragments, waits, mirages, dreams and lies, getting us into that subtle interval that transits between reality and fiction.

Caramés Maite

Translation in progress

I use photography as a narrative image from which stories, series or sequences emerge. My images are the result of a previous intention and depart from encounters, discoveries or moments that evoke unexpected feelings in me. I work by intuition and many times, I am not aware of where my obsessions come from.

Technically, I work with analog photography and usually employ medium format cameras: every story has a suitable language and a special way to be built, therefore the choice of the camera is important when giving shape to all this.

I believe mind is an endless source of creative consciousness. The ideas about which I reflect are intimate and revolve around human condition: time, death, rebirth, beauty, desire.
