Shadows and silence are represented within the project The Dark Book.
With a subtle and profound gaze, Omar Gámez breaks the surface of the spaces dedicated to casual encounters between gay men in Mexico City.
For almost two years he immersed himself inside the dark rooms and photographed them with a strategy of anonymity and ambiguity at the same time.
The Dark Book contains 28 black and white photographs that function as a perfect metaphor for the predator-prey equation that determines dynamics between biological systems and their behaviour in specific contexts.
More than a photographic project, this work was conceived from the beginning as an editorial project.
