Photography has been described as a time-stopping device, something that “freezes” an action. This moment on-pause is the most salient; all conversation about the picture will tend to pin down the beauty of that second. Celeste Ortiz’s photos make us think of something else. A sense of continuation.
Celeste Ortiz is a lovely young photographer based on San Antonio, Chile. Her work mainly consist of self portraits on 35mm film. She has a superb eye for spotting beauty and capturing it. Feminine and delicate, her photographs are brilliant examples of dream-like naturalness and visual poetry. You can catch a glimpse of her stuff if you visit the Cultural Park of Valparaiso all September.
