The Way They Looked at Each Other is a 38-minute visual essay on the tangential use of photography, the significance of the delay implicit in revisiting any photographic snapshot, and the way one sees more things from further away.
Mario García Torres (b. 1975, Monclova, Mexico) lives and works in Mexico City. Over the past twenty years, his work has questioned the stability of such concepts as time, memory, image, and the very essence of the artist’s role in society. An artist deeply interested in uncertainty and counter-narratives, his work blurs the space between fact and fiction through research and a wide range of storytelling strategies.
