The Color Work of Spanish Photographer Cristóbal Hara

“Perhaps the two main factors that allowed me to definitely cross over to color, in 1985,” writes photographer Cristóbal Hara, were the realization that I could find guidance in the great tradition of Spanish painting, and the decision to have the entire image in focus; the latter forced me to use a shorter focal length (28mm) than I normally used and it made it necessary to widen the field of vision on which I was working. I no longer reacted to a situation that was in front of me, but rather to the visual rhythms of a situation in which I was immersed. So easy, and yet so complicated.
