Xan Padrón

Solo Exhibit, Delamour Gallery in Paris

I’m excited to share that the Delamour Gallery in Paris (France) is opening a solo exhibition of my work on June 13th, with pieces from the Time Lapse Series from New York City, Osaka and Rio de Janeiro.

For this show, anthropologist Emilie Arrago-Boruah, from the University of Bordeaux et ILARA-EPHE, has written a beautiful text about my work.

If you are in Paris this summer, here you have all the information:

“The city and its neighborhoods always exist through the uses made of them by passersby. Xan Padrón thus immortalizes some characteristic figures: the unstoppable Chelsea Piers runners, their bodies lean, sculpted by tight sportswear; lovers intertwined here and there; fashion addicts strolling with tons of bags; parents caring for their children; dog walkers; but especially the Modern Man. The latter becomes the main actor of his own movement, in an almost closed world when he escapes the city’s incessant noise through his headphones or the conversation he maintains via his mobile phone. All of this photographer’s works are true street portraits of the contemporary world, dotted with “small facts” that anthropologists are on the lookout for”
