From May 18 to June 30, Diego Ortiz Mugica presents "Water - Photographs, Black and White and Gray" at the CCK, a retrospective exhibition of 50 fine art works spanning more than forty years. Landscapes, portraits, situations and objects recapitulate their particular look through the camera and work in laboratory, with the same conductor: water. "I believe that the immense magnitude that has taken Diego's work with photography is intimately linked to something that is revealed of his human condition. And that "something" is revealed in every atom and in each of the fibers that, from the moment they are discovered, never cease to vibrate in us. That is his universe, composed of a multitude of vibrations that never stop. And every vibration is deep and terribly revealing of a unique look ... That is what achieves his photographic universe, because that image was waiting all this time to reveal the immense magnitude of a look on the human condition "comments the writer Juan Pablo Domenech.
