Publisher's Description

Editorial RM presents The Random Series –berliner trato, romananzo & madrileño trip–, a photographic project carried out by Miguel Ángel Tornero (b. 1978 in Baeza, Spain) over a period of four years in Berlin, Rome, and Madrid. Now enriched with additional material, it is presented in this book that defies conventional classifications.

The Random Series is a project that proposes a particular photographic exercise to be repeated in different cities. The series constitute a highly unusual approach to photography, to the city, and to the photographer himself. During his stay in each city, Tornero photographed his daily activities intensely and instinctively, accumulating a series of images that would provide the raw material for the final digital collages included in the volume. Curiosity and instinct prevailed in his approach to photography –and to the city–, in a combination of flâneur, Japanese tourist (obsessed with recording everything), and infant, taking in chaotic information unconsciously, without processing it, free of all conventionalism. As if seeing it all for the first time.

In the process of creating these unsettling collages, Tornero used a glitch in a software that was not programmed to sew together apparently unrelated images. Ignorant of the parameters of cutting and pasting that the program was going to follow, he let the unexpected take the lead and mark the rhythm of the series. As we can see, the final result is largely left to chance.
