Juan Baraja Rodríguez
Toledo, 1984

Statement

Juan Baraja works with the relationships that arise between architecture and space management through photography.

Juan Baraja (Toledo, 1984) works with the relationships that emerge between architecture and the management of space via photography. Residencies, commissions and his own projects organise an oeuvre in which Baraja uses his camera to travel around different points in European geography, all of them different yet with a common thread joining them: they are spaces forgotten by time. In the opinion of Alfredo Puente, member of the FCAYC cuarorial Area, Baraja revives a way of situating oneself before something to imagine it via fragments, with another composition, far from the parameters that make something complete rational and apprehensible.
