Interview at Vist Projects
“We cannot condemn photography to only seeing the present and what the eyes see. We should allow it to imagine the world”, says the Colombian photographer Jorge Panchoaga. Son of a mixture of an indigenous family and an urban peasant family, in addition to photography he studied anthropology and, even though he never practiced it in a formal way, he acknowledges that it nurtured his gaze. The worlds that Panchoaga imagines are not abstract daydreams: his works range from ethnography to science fiction, from historic investigation and intervention in public debate to the exploitation of dream territories.
