Celebration of Bewilderment
The series proposed here tackles the arrival of a child as a revolutionary event inside existence, a hurricane that destroys all boundaries and wisdom of all types, known until then. Suddenly, in an increasingly egocentric world, where the focus is on the I/Reason/Control, a work that invites us to reflect upon the beauty entailed in giving in to love is as welcome as it is necessary.
I planted a tree that bore fruit, and I enjoyed many books. Till then, an order and a sense. And there came a child, my child. Now I am with others; my well-being depends not just on me, and me alone, but on the joyful existence of others. So simple, so clear, so fragile. So difficult it is to quieten the voice in bur head. What is to be done with has been learnt? With the unresolved issues? With the goals set?
To surrender your body and your soul, to dispel anxiety; there is no other manipulation or speculation possible other than surrender.
To lay down weapons and shields
I ran out of ideas; there is no book to go by; I lost my mind; I’m at sixes and sevens and the ducks are no longer in a row. The clocks went nuts and I am con-fused in a land of happy-go-lucky
I am very much off (my known) limits, to a point in which the world has turned:
Unpredictable, surreal, prodigious
I lose focus, I get disconcerted, I slip and I surrender myself: It turns out that –despite all the doubting, all the daily collisions, all the internal and external chaos– it is wonderful.
Hallelujah! Let’s celebrate!
Candelaria Magliano (Córdoba, Argentina)
Candelaria Magliano was born in Argentina, 1976
Diploma in Digital photography and Degree in Communication Sciences. I got my degree in 2008 with the thesis "Child labor through some photographs". In this research I inquire about the concept of childhood as a social construction, the legal implications and the possibility of photography to show concrete social situations. Currently, I am pursuing a Master in Communication and Contemporary Culture at the Advanced Studies Center from the National University of Cordoba.
Teacher in the chairs of Photojournalism in the course of Communication Sciences at the National University of Villa Maria, Hyper Photography (optional subject) and workshops of Documentary Photography and Creative Photography Since 2016, I am taking part in Collective VeoVeo, visual education.
With my work I have participated in salons, prizes and individual and collective exhibitions in local, national and international settings.
