THE PASSAGE OF TIME
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.
