Supplicant : Mexico 1971-2007 Mixed media product
The territories explored by him are emblematic: the border between the United States and Mexico, the Zapatista territory (from Morelos to Chiapas), the Sierra Tarahumara, and inexhaustible Mexico City.
Atavisms and modernity fuse together in a mosaic that provokes more questions than it answers.
Gasparini demonstrates once more that photography can be an act of conscience. In the DVD Letanias del polvo the words of Juan Villoro serve as both accompaniment and stimulus to Gasparini's images, exploring the poetic meaning of the journey.
With its double register, this book constitutes a singular adventure: a photographer at the height of his powers exploring a convulsive reality, where beauty is no less present than opprobrium.
With an uncompromising gaze, the traveller celebrates the vitality of the country and denounces the calamities that besiege it.
