[Text by curator Anamaría Garzón]
Few are the occasions when Misha Vallejo loses control over his images. Foreign States (2012-2013) is one of those rare occasions. In this photographic experiment, the author produces images that speak the language of pictorial abstraction and, due to its features and tonalities, remind us of the first exercises of impressionism, but do not stop being documentary approximations to spaces and particular moments. This series is produced and filtered from the perspective of intuition, from the altered senses, from the pleasure of letting go. There is delirium, sensuality and dance between light and darkness, between real states of consciousness and others foreign.
