Printing is a very special and delicate process for me, and I feel like my work doesn’t truly exist for me until it is printed. It really brings my images to life. There is a certain texture, precision and color quality to the Baryta Canson® paper that makes this process much more enjoyable and smooth for me. Experimenting and perfecting the right paper is an art form in itself. I think is very important to have the experience to see a printed image as an object instead of in a screen. It gives you the opportunity to confront the image and the color in a different way, and the relationship between photograph-object and spectator has a different space for appreciation.
Tania Franco Klein (b. 1990) started her photography praxis while gaining her BA Architecture in Mexico City, which took her to pursue her Master in Photography at the University of the Arts London.
Her work is highly influenced by her fascination with social behavior and contemporary practices such as leisure, consumption, media overstimulation, emotional disconnection, the obsession with eternal youth, the American dream in the Western world and the psychological sequels they generate in our everyday life.
Influenced by the pursuit of the American Dream lifestyle and contemporary practices such as leisure, consumption, media overstimulation, eternal youth, and the psychological sequels they generate in our everyday private life. The project seeks to evoke a mood of isolation, desperation, vanishing, and anxiety, through fragmented images, that exist both in a fictional way and a real one.
