Photographers of the Diario de Yucatan assemble a new exhibition of artisitic and journalistic work opening Aug. 18….
MERIDA — Images of the Yucatecan coast, beaches, sunrises and sunsets, of the archaeological zones of the State, of traditions, such as the sale of handicrafts and bullfights, are part of what can be seen in the photographic exhibition, “Instantes”.
The exhibition is made up of 120 images compiled by the members of the department of photographers of the newspaper, who in this exhibition provide an overview of the daily work they perform.
At the same time, they feature images taken with their lenses in moments of relaxation and leisure, because the camera is always close to them, and the attentive look to that view that they seem worthy to capture in a photograph.
The exhibition presents an overview of the journalistic and artistic work of Adriana Carrillo Alemán, Valerio Caamal Balam, Carlos de la Cruz Montés de Oca, José Ávila Perera, Fidel Interián Jiménez, Fernando Acosta Yam, Emmanuel Rincon Becerra and Ramón Celis Perera.
The exhibition is presented in the International Airport of Merida “Manuel Crescencio Rejón” and will be inaugurated on Friday Aug. 18 at 10:30 am in the corridors of the top floor of the terminal.
Carlos de la Cruz shares that among the images selected for the exhibition there are several that are backlit, an element that he likes to explore frequently, but that for the purposes of everyday journalistic work is hardly used.
So it is an opportunity to show the public this facet, together with other images that allow watching the detail of the crafts in exhibition and sale, the traditional games in a competition in Kanasín, some events in the Plaza de Toros Mérida, among others.
José Ávila Perera made a selection of photographs of Chichen Itza, the El Castillo area, the market and the Observatory, taken several years ago, as well as different beaches on the Yucatecan coast, where the sunsets predominate.
He says that when taking a photo he looks for something different or flashy, “an element that makes the image different.”
He seeks to have a reference in the image, meaning that if he sees an animal, a bird or a reptile, or still life as a trunk, he makes them part of the view.
Emmanuel Rincón Becerra participates in the show with the series “De amaneceres y ocaso”, in which he makes evident his taste for the supersaturated hues that nature gives at those moments of the day.
The photos were captured in moments of great calm and tranquility, and for him they transmit freedom, and the idea of how small the human being is before the universe.
It also includes pictures of handicrafts, the equinox of Chichen Itza and people enjoying the view of the beach.
In the exhibition you can see in detail the work of the artists of the lens and a description of the images.
