Artist's Statement

Xan Padron

I consider my works a kind of documentation of a city or a specific neighborhood. This project is not about the pictures I take but about the life that emanates from a moment of observation; a moment of pause. For the “Time Lapse” project I sit on a single spot, unnoticed, for about 2 hours, photographing a sequence of people passing by against one unique background. These quotidian gestures, combined, create a unique narrative of life by a wall in a place in the world. It's an ongoing project that includes cities in Spain, USA, Dominican Republic, China, Italy, Portugal, Cuba, France, UK. Color prints different sizes from 20x30 - 40x60
