Mark Powell’s images captured across Latin America configure a multi-layered narrative that moves from the known to the tortuous, from composition to imbalance, from humor to an unsettling disquiet.
It is not clear whether Powell’s photography is the result of objective possibilities, documented street photography, provocative collaboration, or a combination of these last two. It is obvious, however, that it offers an answer to a question that artists have always posed: Does the act of observing change the origin and meaning of what we observe? The answer is another question: Would these scenes have taken place like this, if Powell had not been there to observe them?
