Octavio Garcia | Aztec Gods

Hard resistance on B&W photographic fibre based paper
60.9cm x 50.8cm (unique prints)

Chromogenic prints
36.5cm x 30.5cm (Edition of 15)

This set of works re-creates a Pantheon of Aztec Gods, using sacred images which were originally carved in stone and painted on traditional paper made from bark (called Codex). By applying photographic chemistry through fine cuts made directly onto the B&W photographic paper, Octavio has created a series of unique photographic prints, which renew and strengthen his spiritual beliefs and cultural identity as a Mexican.

This gallery will be updated with all images on Friday 12 August.
