WRONG SIDE OF THE ROAD
BY JM RAMÍREZ-SUASSI
JM Ramírez-Suassi (1970) was born in Mallorca (Spain) and now lives and works in Madrid. His photographs, which at first sight appears to fit seamlessly into the great nowhere, involve many visits to the same landscapes to observe the change year after year. His work occupies an ambiguous position somewhere between portraiture and social landscape. Peripheries and Wrong side of the road is an ongoing series documenting the outskirts of the city Madrid. Nonetheless, recent work (Eden or The Days of the Barber’s Winding Sheet) also emphasizes seemingly casual shots of his family and friends.
JM Ramírez-Suassi exhibited his artwork in Europe and USA. Is a self-taught.
I always return to the same places over and over again, until I get used to a kind of cycle of illusion, disenchantment and recidivism in which I am capable to understand myself through the images captured.
Our aim is to disseminate and bring to light telling work of emergent or young photographers.
