My Hometown

Essay 149 • May 24th 2017

In this series, the Argentine photographer Ramiro Gómez captures architectural spaces located in his native province: Córdoba, Argentina. 

Through the camera of his mobile phone, the photographer creates a new urban landscape. A minimalist landscape that we could only appreciate if we look up and isolate small portions of urban geometry. 

Often, the partial vision of an image tells us nothing. We seek to understand the context; we need to know the whole so we can appreciate the beauty of a shot. In this series, the photographer tries to make us forget the main objective is the whole image, becoming an absolute protagonist the “partial details”. By showing only part of the building, it gives us a unique point of view, a new way of seeing everything around us. 


My name is Ramiro Gomez and I live in Villa Carlos Paz, Argentina. I studied photography at Escuela de Artes Aplicadas Lino Spilimbergo in Cordoba, and now im currently studying cinema and film making.Style and order are my philosophy in life as well as in photography, whenever I shoot my camera I love seeing the colours, the lines, the shadows, I make them mine, they belong to me because I captured them, I appropriate them.
