Guido Torres won Bronze in the series competition, using images which were already in his portfolio. The images show a site which was Guido’s backyard for sometime: that of the chocolate museum in Toluca, Mexico, being built. The museum invited Guido to document the construction process. “The images illustrate the duality between living beings and architecture, and their journey together through the path of evolution,” explains Guido.
“Evolution has an intimate relationship with both living beings and architecture,” Guido says. “That’s why, when you see wild animals against a backdrop of chaotic steel forms, you are led to think about the dramatic evolution from natural to built environment. This scenery was my backyard for months.”
Guido’s own background is in painting and architecture, which have helped him develop a strong sense of composition. A flexible photographer, he is open for commissions anywhere in the world. He is particularly interested in shooting images of musicians, as well as collaborating with artists and exhibiting the resulting work in galleries.
