But these new photographers who choose photography as a means of expression and the problems of society, a reality, situations that can affect everyone, not repeat the classic schemes of documentary and press photography, but are substantially changing the landscape of photography, being recognized in artistic circles as exponents of a plastic tradition that was never sufficiently valued and that the present widely recognized".
His personal projects deal places where significant events have occurred and the possibility that the spaces keep memories of what happened in them.www.nophoto.org/eduardonave
