James Mollison – Playgrounds

‘Mollison’s photo projects are defined by smart, original concepts applied to serious social and environmental themes. For Playground, Mollison photographed children at play in their school playgrounds, inspired by memories of his own childhood and interested in how we all learn to negotiate relationships and our place in the world through play. Various scenes of laughter, tears, and games demonstrate the intense experiences which happen in the playground. For each picture, Mollison sets up his camera during school break time, making multiple frames and then composing each final photograph from several scenes, in which he finds revealing “play” narratives. With photographs from rich and poor schools, numerous middle schools, and some high schools, in countries including Argentina, Bhutan, Bolivia, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Nepal, Norway, Sierra Leone, the United Kingdom, and the U.S., Mollison also provides access for readers of all ages to issues of global diversity and inequality. The photographs will be available through Aperture Foundation. Sales proceeds support the Foundation’s public and book-publishing program.’

Identity At Play

Jorge Santiago:

“Like many of my fellow villagers, I grew up idolizing the star players from my village and others. I saved up money for basketball shoes and spent most of my spare time on the basketball court which, as one of the few flat spaces in hilly and terraced Serrano villages, was not only a site of play but a public gathering space.

In this project, I explored the ways in which basketball reinforces indigenous identity, and is shaped by the unique geography, history, culture and sense of community in the Sierra Norte. Basketball tournaments are the central fixture of the annual village fiesta, the single most important event in a Serrano village. During the fiesta, the basketball court is the fulcrum of activity: bulls are slaughtered there, bands give massive group concerts, dances are held, the names of the people sponsoring the fiesta – mainly Mexican emigrants living in the United States – are read aloud, and of course, tournaments are played out. The basketball court is where indigenous identity and community become uniquely manifest. After having lived abroad in the U.S. for several years, I was particularly keen on revisiting basketball from the dual perspective of a local and a returned immigrant.”

Walter Iraheta – Kyptonita

Kriptonita is one of the most paradigmatic works by Salvadoran artist Waterio Iraheta. It implies a single word that transports us irremediably to that rarity which produced in Superman, the man of steel, effects contrary to those qualities that made him an indestructible superhero. However, Iraheta’s work is based on the antithesis of the perfect hero archetype – a corpulent figure with Anglo-Saxon features and an impeccable appearance. First of all, his story begins with the representation of a super-boy with clearly local features, a boy who from up on high, amidst the clouds, is posed in the classic position, his hands on his waist to better show the “S” that covers his chest. This new version of the man of steel provokes a series of readings that put the myth in question and then, by substitution, propose a reconsideration of the limits of heroism. Who are the real heroes? Without a doubt, they are those who lack supernatural powers and yet still resolve the problems of existence in the planetary realm where madness and extreme deficiencies dwell.
