Like Peru, Ethiopia is a real obsession for Juan Manuel Castro Prieto who has returned there many times. He finds there an ancestral memory of humanity. His photographs – where for the first time colour alternates with black & white – are stripped down of any exoticism and stereotypes and constitute less a travel diary than a prolonged meditation. Simultaneously precise and symbolic, this meditation deals with a land in the grip of an ambiguous temporality, where a primeval figure – incarnated by a receding silhouette – and a diffuse spirituality, converse with the objects, signs and behaviours of the modern world.
