Interview: Carlos Torres Machado

Born in Ecuador in 1981, over the last eight years Carlos Torres Machado has made remarkable images that explore the construction of the scene in a neo-pictorialist will to demonstrate the difference between “taking a picture” and “making a picture”. He chose to work with studio photography to construct his pictures. After his B.A. in Contemporary Arts and Communication, Torres has participated in several solo and group art exhibitions and has worked with name brands such as Peugeot, Toyota, Herbalife, Diners Club-Discover, among others. He owned and managed a magazine called “Barón” a couple of years ago and, for the last three years, he has taught Contemporary photography at Universities.

Luca Curci – When you start practicing art and why?
Carlos Torres Machado – Since the beginning of my life, I have been practicing art in every act, in every crayon draw, in every lego construction, that is when artists began to form a subconscious idea of what they want to do later in their lives. When we grow, we make the same things that we did as a child: the name is the only change that happens. When you are a child you go to play, when you are an adult you go to work.
