Fragile Figures: Angelica Garcia

Remember the old days, when all your photographs were on paper and were precious and fragile?  If you’ve ever had a photo destroyed by heat or liquid, you know what I’m talking about.  The once familiar image becomes distorted, a face we knew now obliterated.  The work of Venezuelan photographer Angelica Garcia reminds us that though our photographs can now be “backed up” and last forever, their subjects are still fragile and fading.

The photographer manipulates each photograph, not with digital software, but hand manipulates each one post printing.  Purposefully distorting and abstracting each figure, we are left with ghostly apparitions of what was once.  The plainclothes style of each figure makes them universal and relatable,  someone we might have known.
