My series "Episodios" centers in the repurposing and re-styling of objects, showing their materiality and at the same time manipulating some of their physical qualities. This photographic series was developed during the coronavirus pandemic. It aims to investigate color, shape, and composition, using only objects that are at hand in my studio, such as tools and photographic equipment, along with elements from previous productions. The result is a juxtaposition of things that in a different situation would not interact. Like the rest of my work, these images were designed using a grid system.

Rodrigo Chapa (Monterrey, Nuevo León, México. 1987) currently lives and works in Mexico City. He graduated from a masters in professional photography with studio specialty in the international photographic school, Spéos, Paris (2012-2013). His work is inspired by the phenomenology of color, producing scenarios to explore the limits of its psychological and spiritual implications. In his artistic practice, he mainly explores the medium of photography, relying on the pictorial tradition as an environmental resource to build an image. He has taught photography at CEDIM, Gimnasio de Arte and LCI.
