His small son’s birthday series is one of the most  outstanding and meaningful . The images,  set in eight wooden boxes,  show the child, year by year, next to an object (a pencil, a stone, a little boat in a bottle) to catch the  insignificant private emotional vibrations of a specific moment. There, in the continuity of that series, Jorge Deustua’s ethics are synthesized: It is not virtuosismo nor  conceptual complexity  he is looking for,  not even an estheticist’s  filigree. What Jorge Deustua looks for is domestic intensity, the life behind the photo.
