About

Little Hours (2018)
 25x20 cm, Edition of 10 plus 2 Artist Proofs. Giclée Print on Hahnemühle Fine Art Baryta, based on a Fuji Instant Film (not mounted) About myself I was born and raised in Barcelona where I studied Fine Arts and Landscape Architecture. I completed my studies in London and Paris.I am interested in the narrative sense of photography, that frozen moment that allows an ambiguous narrative. That intermediate moment which gives place to the spectator to create his own story, to compose his own mental images, recreating a separate sphere constructed in between a shared reality and an imaginary world. About the work The pictures depart from the everyday reality with intentionally elements that transport us to afairy tale world. I have being working patiently on that series since 2014. The pictures are about my every day life, my relationship with my surroundings, with my daughter and her friends, their games,the imaginary world through which they travel that becomes invisible to the adult gaze.I've been photographing the same girls for years. The passage of time becomes visible in their looks,in the metamorphosis they have to face in their journey towards adulthood. It is a long term project in which I will follow the evolution of the characters.By opting in this series for the Polaroid technique, which in our analogue childhood was associated with the instant recording of the ordinary, with the diary provided by the family album, I try to pose a paradox, to record what is not visible, the sensory universe of childhood. I try to capture what occurs when the boundary between reality and fiction in a child’s perceptive felt is blurred, between the staging of her dreams and their unlikely fulfillment. Once “The title Once, recalling the distant "Once upon a time", is established as the beginning of a story. A narrative of photographic images that, more than describing, evoke the enigmas of childhood with the elasticity of an intimate diary. Intrigued and fascinated by a daily life starring little Red Riding Hoods, princesses and fairies of the forest, the artist invokes an imaginary world that can only exist through its agreement with fiction, where the game itself is more real than reality. In this solitary and self-absorbed children's paradise, the visual metaphors reveal a stage tinged with melancholy, or suspension of a time we all deeply yearn for. While models evade the tension of their own bodies,gestures and looks, Fontsaré's works venture the incipient metamorphosis of girls into women, with a staging of the sensory and secret universe of childhood. The nostalgic, oniric and pictorialist aspect of Polaroid technique reinforces this artistic exploration of the transience of life, and an almost sociological work, full of invisible nuances, that captures the beauty and fragility of the passage from childhood to maturity. The intuitive vision that Fontsaré directs towards the unfathomable of childhood manages to revive it in the eyes, and make visible what, from childhood, persists in the depths of our eyes”. Laura Cornejo Curator and art writter
