ESFOTO 2009 Catalog

I got a copy of the catalog of the photography festival ESFOTO 2009 held in El Salvador last year, it is a snapshot of what fine art photographers are doing in the Central American region actually.
See pics of the opening.

Cinderella's Chair

Cinderella’s Chair is a follow up of the Anna Ter Haar's project “Buitenbeentje”. Prostheses of glass, like a prosthetic leg, custom made for each chair. Glass is a malleable material when heated, so the glass was blown onto the chair, which provides every chair with its own unique prosthesis that are strong enough to carry weight though. One can easily sit on the chairs, something you do not expect when you see them. See more at www.annaterhaar.nl site.

Guatemala is full of colors and one of its prime assets are the handwoven linens, these intricate patterns are transmitted through generations and updated randomly by the artist in the moment when the garment is made.
