"The overall project consists of 88 photographs, 16 of which are photographed poems. Of the 46 photographs that can be seen in Barcelona, 6 are of the mentioned photographed poems. This fact, that could be easily overlooked, exemplifies his personal declaration of principles regarding the photography: a poetic image that can be literary or iconographic. The exhibition is a labor of selection, a collection of fragments that evoke an image. Beyond what we are able to identify, they are pieces of reality, a reality charged with intimacy.
Dávila, throughout his career, has worked for national and international media as a journalist photographer, for which he has been widely recognized. In the process he has come to focus on what an image can mean and how to transmit the captured moment.. The photographs, the majority untitled, show all types of detail approached in different ways. It is not the HOW but the WHAT that remains.
Recalled are remnants of a world that is his own: , his wife sleeping, a shadow, a flower. . ALL the things in the world/ All the wordly things? reveals a thought . It is a reflection carried out through photography. It is a contemplation on how not to betray our context, on how to transmit our thoughts. Roland Barthes wrote: “Ultimately, Photography is subversive, not when it frightens, repels, or even stigmatizes, but when it is pensive, when it thinks.”Dávila`s work can be conceived with the support of propositions such as Barthes. His reflections on reality through images or words, in both cases a subversive image, are the act of revealing one’s own cry?. Just as his own poems dictate: the cry and the silence joined in an image understood as a symbol."
