Proposition One by Max de Esteban
In his new series, entitled “Proposition One”, Spanish photographer Max de Esteban deconstructs obsolete technology products and photographs the inner workings, layer by layer, to create these amazing images.
“The series of images have an x-ray, mortuary quality; as forensic testimonies of a past existence; vestiges of their inner structure can be clearly identified while others fade or have disappeared as in decomposing organic bodies. By eliminating the objects’ individual peculiarities, each photograph becomes a generic symbol of decay and death. While sophisticated and state-of-the-art not long ago, these tools evoke today a sense of fragility, archaism and trauma.”
