Vernissage d'Antonio Caballero "fotonovelas extension"

Saturday, April 24, 2010 18:00-21:00 CEST

April 24 - May 29

New exhibition at Polaris Gallery of this Mexican photographer, who was born in 1940 and specialized in Mexican photographic short stories (Fotonovelas).

Considered as one of the greatest photographers of Fotonovelas in the 1960s & 1970s in Mexico, Antonio Caballero involved himself with all the tasks involved in making photographic short stories, including those of the scenario, the casting, the decoration, the lighting, and of course, the shooting.
Today we have a better understanding of the avant-garde style of this artist, whose work at the time was not understood for its originality and forward thinking concepts. Now looking back, we realize that his photography from the 60s & 70s is very similar to the photography in today's contemporary art world.

If his work reminds one of those of Cindy Sherman or Jeff Wall, it is simply because Antonio Caballero, with his great knowledge of photographic history, knew that he was going to advance the “little” world of photographic short stories into the world of contemporary art.
