Summary of Project:

“This work investigates the relationship between the material aspect of a photograph and the image on to which it is printed. It addresses transmission and reception caused by interconnection of symbols (image) and object (paper substrata). THROUGH is a series within this investigation.

It can be observed that the major exchange with a photograph is a mostly a symbolic one. The power of the image engulfs us, overshadowing the material nature of the paper object, creating the perception that there is something non-material about the photograph. Emilio’s interest lies in the relationship between the illusionistic space within the image and the actual object in the space with us.
