EXPO SHANGHAI 2010: INTENSIVE GAZES.



I had always seen so many pristine and untainted image of the perfect renderings and photos about the World Expo Shanghai 2010, but when I was there I was captivated by the diverse repertoire of textures, colors and shapes that many pavilions offered when taking a closer look, pausing before the swarming frenzy of the crowds that invaded the fairgrounds.

"Intensive gazes", in terms of Architect Helio Piñon (that I happen to learn through my friend Aldo Facho), is a vision that "seeks to guide the eye to be able to understand the relationship of the components that generate the architectural form." .

EXPO SHANGHAI 2010: MIRADAS INTENSIVAS / INTENSIVE GAZES / 強烈な視線 is also my first photographic exhibition to be presented (almost) simultaneously in Peru and Japan.
  • 10 Nov.: Altos del Portal of the Municipality. Plaza de Armas of Arequipa, Peru.
  • 22 Nov.-11 Dec.: Galería-Café Anonima. Kyoto, Japan.


Esta selección intenta ver la Expo Shanghai 2010 en una forma diferente, a través de una mirada más cercana e íntima. Aquí, las imágenes conocidas de los pabellones se vuelven menos evidentes que sus detalles, texturas y colores. Un juego de luz y sombras, invitándole a mirar la Expo más intensivamente.

This selection is an attempt to see the Expo Shanghai 2010 in a different way, through a closer and more intimate look. Here, the usual broad view of the pavilions become less evident than their details, textures and colors. A game of light and shadows, inviting you to gaze the Expo more intensively.

この選択は、より親密に近い外観を介して別の方法で上海万博2010を参照してくださいする試みです。ここでは、パビリオンの通常の広範なビューには、その詳細、テクスチャや色をより明らかになる。にご招待光と影のゲームは、より集中的に万博の視線。





Many thanks to my sisters, Katiuska and Monica Zeballos, and to the architect Carlos Rodriguez for their monumental support to make this exhibition possible in Arequipa. I also thank to Jimena Mora, Oki Nakamura and Angélica Naka for their kind assistance in carrying out the exhibition in Kyoto. I will also be very grateful to all visitors who attend this event.
