Max de Esteban is featured in Issue #2 of Staging Ground, showcasing his Proposition One: Only The Ephemeral series.
“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."–Max de Esteban.See the complete series of photographs on the gallery website.
