BARÓN, Julián

2015-BAR-portrait

Born 1978, Castellón, Spain.
Lives and works in Segorbe, Spain.

 

Julian Barón is one of the most active and commited figures of the new Spanish photographic scene. The installation presented at the rencontres d’Arles brings together for the first time three of his recent projects, produced in Spain since 2011: C.E.N.S.U.R.A, Tauromaquia, and Los últimos días vistos del rey. Deeply concerned by the political, economic, and social issues of a country in unprecedented crisis, he uses outrageously manipulated and twisted images in a dialectic of the representation of power, institutions, and the political class.

 

Fannie Escoulen presented Pauline Fargue and Julián Barón at The Discouvery Award at the Rencontres d’Arles 2015.
