Photographer #221: Anthony Goicolea

Anthony Goicolea, 1971, USA, is an artist with Cuban roots specialised in more than just photography. He draws, builds installations and works with video. His conceptual art deals with various themes and contains many layers. For the entire Related series Anthony used drawing, photography, sculpture and installation to explore his family history and identity as well as themes of ritual, assimilation and alienation. His series Almost Safe consists of digitally composed images using familiar elements from different locations to create new topographies. Goicolea has used himself as an actor in many of his series. With the use of digital manipulation he is able to clone himself and play various characters in the images that deal with several different issues. The following images come from the series Related, Almost Safe and Self Portraits.
