return to nē42

by Vicenį Altaiķ

Humberto Rivas's vision of the world is a deeply disturbing one. He takes photographs of old, empty buildings which appear to be destined for imminent demolition. The human figure is absent from the images produced by this gifted photographer of Argentinian origin, even though we can see the traces that men have left behind with the passing of time. His pictures of forlorn street corners convey an all-pervading feeling of emptiness.
