Antlitz Der Zeit.
Photographs by Jorge Ribalta.
Universidad de Salamanca, Salamana, In Spanish and, 2006. 78 pp., 32 b&w illustrations, 9¾x12".
Ribalta’s series of 32 black and white photographs follows in the tradition of celebrity portraiture. The pictures depict a cross-section of well-and-lesser known public media figures of the present, both from fiction film and social and political life. Particular to this series of photographs is that they have been made in the studio using action figures. The result is a world wherein reality, illusion, artificiality and kitsch cross over each other.
