John Szarkowski, director of photography at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, differentiated two types of photographic tendencies called windows and mirrors. The window is a documentary image that describes reality as it is, showing the world accurately with the aim of remember it. The mirror is an image that incorporates the subjective narrative, where the author shows his personal vision of the world and turns photography into an artistic expression that sometimes projects its values, reflections, emotions, states or perceptions.
Espentana is a personal exhibition space, whose name comes from the union of the Spanish words "espejo" (mirror) and "ventana" (window). This duality is part of the photographic identity of each artist. Both characteristics can coexist simultaneously, one prevail over the other or evolve over time.
