Evidence (2013-ongoing)

Evidence is a photographic series that, since 2013, recreates press photographs published in the Bolivian press of found objects that are documented as evidence from the cocaine factory seizures discovered by the FELCN Bolivia (Fuerza Especial de Lucha Contra el Narcotráfico) or drug-related incidents in the past three years. With an emphasis on the shapes and patterns that emerge when the items seized (cocaine, vehicles, money, weapons, etc.) are documented images are created that are photographic but which by their nature, rawness, repetition and variation, point beyond the medium that represents them to the uncontrollable character of the drug trade. The aim is to address the complex social relationship between drug trafficking and the social, economic, and political structure in Bolivia.
