Angst

 

"Daniel Weinstock"
by Alejandro Castellote

 

There is something magical about the characters that inhabit Daniel Weinstock’s work.

 

They may have been drawn from a hallucinogenic journey or belong to that surreal universe that appears to be enveloped in an onirical halo in David Lynch’s theater, except that they are real.

 

Their unsettling presence elicits our most irrational fears, recalling the frailty of reason and the proximity of madness.

 

Images are manipulated in such a way that they further accentuate the fantastic, sometimes grotesque nature of their protagonists. The subtle reference to Diane Arbus that floated in the earliest portraits in black and white is now deactivated after some expressionistic interventions.

 

Rather than photographic references, its characters refers to the splitting of realities narrated by Juan Rulfo in Pedro Páramo.

 

Weinstock crosses the ambiguous borders of madness, using delirium and tenderness to create a self-portrait through borrowed figures, perhaps the self-same ones that I once was. This is one way of understanding what it feels like to be on the other side.

    Increible trabajo!, de alguna manera la realidad que vemos a menudo, está manejada por lo medios y la publicidad (lo digo como gráfico); tu trabajo de alguna manera inspira reconocer que existe una realidad que no es sezgada por nuestros paradigmas "estéticos" actuales.

    Hi Daniel, hope your journey back home went well. Any chance to see the pics we've taken at the graveyard in Ballinskelligs? Would love to see how they've turned out.
    All the best, Kirsten

    Daniel, this work is very captivating! It truly standouts from all of the over galleries in zonezero. Where do your inspirations come from for work like this? It looks like you spend a lot of time working with the photos, pushing them to the max and it clearly shows. How much time did you put into this series? Or any of your other series for that matter.

    Hi there, I find your body of work stunning. I am recently intrigued in the use of hand manipulation in photography. What processes did you use for this series? Also what camera did you use? Thanks for sharing, very rich body of work!
