Dialogue allows us to discover what makes us similar, but alsowhat makes us different. It is the supreme challenge of our ability to accept, where the tension and contradictions, agreements and differences are resolved in a double look, in a common pursuit.
“Photographic Correspondence”, presents an image download e-mail exchanges between Marcelo Brodsky, based in Buenos Aires, and Pablo Ortiz Monasterio in Mexico City. During the project, each photographer replied to the last image of the other in a poetic, playful and intuitive, combining random from a ready-made with the complexity of the photographic memory.

To see each image twice produces a strange feeling and suggestive, repeating the instant method followed by photographers and encouraging the viewer to make connectionsunconscious.
