BLANK PAPER Miren Pastor

Bidean

Espagne

2016 - agnès b.

Considering adolescence as an archetype of change, Miren Pastor examines different elements that make us grow and shape our personality. Of Basque origin, the series is named “Bidean” meaning an ongoing process, a change. The artist’s project evolves as the adolescents she photographs continue to grow, building their own identity.

The project is built around photographic works produced by the photographer: shots characterising each stage of her models’ transition to adulthood which she has combined with metaphorical texts by Iván del Rey de la Torre.
