Ricardo Jiménez is an active sightseer who has learned to get lost in the city so he can later find it again, and on the way find himself. Ricardo Jiménez is a careful yet discreet observer. He never draws attention to himself but manages to find poetic images in the manner of a water diviner who makes his discovery, with a modest expression, short on words and little but a hand-held tool which he only implements when there is no other choice.
This new book belongs to the PHotoBolsillo series, which publishes monographs on the most important Spanish, Latin American and African photographers in a didactic and affordable format.
Ricardo Jiménez (Caracas, 1951) studied with Alexis Pérez-Luna, Mick Williamson, Paul Jill and James Moore. In England, he founded the Group Encounters together with Kim Nygaard and Ricardo Gómez Pérez, which whom he exhibited his first photographs at the Manchester Gallery. Urban landscapes and his unique use of light are already present in these first photos, which would earn him important awards and recognition over the years. Jiménez’s work is a meeting point for documentary photography, urban landscape and poetry, and he is considered a great master in contemporary Venezuelan photography.
