Miragros de la Torre: “CENSORED”

Pilar Gallery, Sao Paulo

The series Censored, produced by the Peruvian photographer Milagros de la Torre (b. 1965), was taken in 2000, the result of research carried out in the oldest Spanish language library in the world, the University of Salamanca library, where she researched books published between the 15th century and XVII that were censored, obliterated and repressed by the Spanish Inquisition. The series presents photographs with subtle colors, printed on beige cotton paper, highlighting the intense black and brown of the censored pages, establishing a tension between the beauty of the images and the violence of the suppression of thoughts and ideas by the authorities of the time.
