Jose Manuel Ballester - Abstraction in Reality by Jose Manuel Ballester

Book Description

This is a magnificently illustrated look at the most recent work of award-winning Spanish photographer Jose Manuel Ballester. The photography of Jose Manuel Ballester reveals the ephemeral and instantaneous in a way that seems a-temporal, even before the object of his photograph is set within the scene. The work of this artist, who began his professional career as a painter and who, from early on, combined photography with other disciplines, offers a highly personal interpretation of the places that appear in his photographs. The "Abstraction in Reality" contains fifty photographs taken from Ballester's most recent work, specifically from the last five years of photographic output. This is the first time these images have been published, and they display the power of Ballester's gaze and his ability to capture the transformation of the static into the eternal, stripping away the temporal dimension from his subjects and working with the utmost skill in the spatial realm.
