Mendez de Hoyos

California Museum of Photography

January 29 - May 21, 2005

Enrique Méndez states that he is "interested in examining the role played by identity papers in the construction of the image of the individual in a social context. I.e. the way documents generate a link between a name, place of birth, family history, economic status and a face. If documents matter is because they are imposed to the individual; defining for he or she, privileges and obligations. On reformulating the elements making up these credentials (text, graphics and images), into a photographic document, my intention is to underline the way they articulate to project a single image of the person. In this way, text and graphics, end up as an extension of the photographic discourse of identity".
