Highlighting through contrast. Showing the absurd by means of a parallelism of the opposite reality. Awakening reason through an image that contains a non-symbol. These are some of the question that the Mexican Stanley Shoemaker poses through the digital compositing that he makes on black and white images since five years ago.
According to the photographer, the images intentions, besides the obvious cultural, social and economic contrast, are to make clear that what we see in them may become real, given the homogenizing process at every level that we are living in, but that hasn’t been able to heal the differences between first and third world countries. On the other hand, Shoemaker considers that there are different religions in the world whose promises for human kind are the same: a state of fulfillment, be it in heaven or nirvana,; but they ultimately agree in virtue and distance, which, paradoxically, cause so many conflicts.
