Lake Verea

Born in Mexico City, 2005 and lives in Mexico City, Mexico

Photographers Lake Verea work as a team since they met in 2005. Working simultaneously with two cameras of the same format, swapping cameras and/or fussing ideas, the duo has created a unique blend of objectivism relaying mostly on analogue rather than digital techniques. Their two key interest have been modernist architecture and portraiture, which they marry up by capturing the human dimensions of buildings with the solemnity of portraits. Their modus operandi involves intention carefully planned to create a discourse. Their pursuit is to talk about light with light and time with time from the territory of memory embracing a particular fascination for modern ruins captured by the mechanics and optics of archaic cameras, lenses, and printing techniques.
Lake Verea have received the acquisition prize of the Purificación García Collection in 2013 and the British Journal of photography in 2007 amongst others. Their work is in numerous Mexican and international collection and published widely in specialized books, catalogues, magazines and blogs over the years.
