The photographer and architect Gabriela Torres Ruiz shows how silence can be captured
photographically and the associations it engenders. With a fine sense for the poetic interplay
between light, color, and space, her Silence series juxtaposes landscape motifs and interior
photographs in diptychs. The depicted decay of the buildings alongside enchanted alpine
and forest landscapes make reference to the cycle between architecture and nature, which
ultimately reclaims its environment.
Not only do the photographs reveal a formal affinity in terms of their texture and nuanced color
as a result of Torres Ruiz’s sensitive selection, but they also closely relate in content. The
melancholy beauty of Iceland was the source of inspiration for the series. The photographer
has since sought out further abandoned and forgotten places for the purpose of reflecting
on the phenomenon of “silence”.
