“It was not an image, nor a sound: it was only a rhythm that – from time to time – attempted to be both. Only then I began to discover the city, which up until that moment had almost passed unperceived.” Peter Handke.
The images of Ciudad Sur have found in Sergio Castañeria’s camera a way out of silence and oblivion. Outside the borders of tourists’ maps, the life of the suburbs of Seville could drift away with little ado.
The photographer himself has never intentionally looked for these scenes. They were no more than the backdrop of his commuting to work. But, little by little, these fragmented scenes won over Castañeira and called him to piece them together. He started then, on his way to work, to shot, day after day for almost two years.
When we look at the black and white pictures that make up Ciudad Sur, however, we are not facing the portrait of a neglected neighbourhood in times of crisis. What we see is an intimate diary that tells us about sense making and doubt.
