Jorge Andres Rosano Gamboa selected his second-place images from a project he is currently working on. "Most of my work is about the idea of identity," he says. "I modify, transform or erase it. In the case of these images, I worked on how to replace the identity, like a game. The physiology of each person make us unique and recognisable: we do not choose the face we get, but we choose the clothes we wear, so this is another way to form our identity. The exercise was to flip the thing and dress the faces, so the people would be unrecognisable, transformed in a different form. I enjoyed the process a lot."
Jorge comes from a family that has been making frames in Mexico City since 1950. He studied photography for three years, became a graphic designer and now works in the visual arts, specialising in photography. He finds the market in Mexico City tough but is committed to continuing his professional studies in order to progress and innovate.
Jorge is about to go to Columbia for six months to continue studying. He hopes to exhibit his work there, and to then create an exhibition of the photographs he shot in Columbia on his return to Mexico.
