I am Aldana Taboada, the eye behind the glass.
I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
As you will notice, I love travelling.
Absolutely everything in this world is meant to be engaged, in any way possible. I believe that we – as humans- are tempted and encouraged not to take a moment and appreciate the details that surround us in our daily life, because we utterly look at ourselves instead.
Doing the opposite might be overwhelming at first; we may find that there’s actually a lot going on too fast on the scenery. But in order to find meaning we must understand what is actually happening out there, beyond our feet.
I feel that photography is a powerful tool to see beyond ourselves. Being a photographer doesn’t consist in having a great camera, but in learning and discovering the little things that has meaning, or else: giving meaning to all things as they come, then let them go as we have captured their essence. It is a continuous holding on and letting go by keeping the meaningful side of things, and that reflects on us as a part of it all.
“It’s not that I can’t fall in love. It’s really that I can’t help falling in love with too many things all at once. So, you must understand why I can’t distinguish between what’s platonic and what isn’t, because it’s all too much and not enough at the same time.”
