A White Tale

It is a world so high, compared to us, that we do not hear its sound …. This is why white strikes us, like a great silence that seems absolute to us. In this sense, white loses its color character, preferring instead the character of whiteness, abstract and open to linguistic contamination with terms such as “pure”. White as the absence of sound. The place of purity. Place of nothingness and of the invisible.

This time the style and the views of boxwood are unmistakable, known for his black and white photographs the result of years of research around the world. “Americas” is the turning point of the Artist iconography, from reportage to landscape loud at times sparse and open spaces shaped by wind and water or angles metropolis full of humanity, but devoid of human presence or known icons of the American landscape alternating to unpublished dreamlike visions.

“Boxwood interested in ethnology and the relations between nations presents us with its icons all humanity, sensitivity and delicacy of these. His images, with the depth of the tones and the ability to merge man with the landscape, remind me in some ways those of Salgado I hosted Sicof and I was honored to meet and follow on many occasions including the major exhibition Arles “.
