LOS ANGELES, CA.- Pablo Bordón is a photographer that works with both analog and digital film typically using a monochromatic palette. His photographic series, “Ludo” and “HDRs”, question objective reality by deconstructing and creating other realities. These new realities are founded on the transformation of identity as well as abstracted and hyper realistic urban landscapes.

The “HDRs” series is about the deconstruction of an urban landscape. Pablo first finds the environment he wants to photograph and then digitally enhances it in order to create an abstract hyper-reality. The result is a barrage of layered information representing the hectic movement of cities.

The “Ludo” series is inspired by Neue Sachlichkeit or “New Objectivity” of the 1920’s and 1930’s photography. Pablo exposes the objective truth of the reality depicted in his photographs. First, he provides a diving mask for the model. By providing this mask he allows the model to conceal themselves thereby liberating them from their sense of self. The mask gives the model an opportunity to try on different identities and allows them to be less self-conscious. It disinhibits their reservations about who they think they should be in lieu of who they want to be in that moment.

Pablo Bordón earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Digital Art at San Alejandro Academy of Fine Arts where he studied cinematography, videography, photography, and design. He completed a residency and his Master’s Degree at the The University of Arts of Cuba (ISA) where he worked as a professor of photography on the Visual Arts faculty for 5 years. Pablo received the Gutstav Schübeck Scholarship (DAAD) to develop his studies in Alfter, Germany.

His work has been shown in Mexico, Germany, USA, The Bahamas, and Cuba. He has participated in the III Latin American Photographic Conference in Cuba, the First and Second International Festival of Video Creation in Mexico, and a new media workshop exchange with the University of Stockholm, Sweden, as a representative of the University of the Arts (ISA), Havana, Cuba.
