“Inspired by Eléna Rivera’s poem “September” I decided to use cyanotype for the development of this collaborative broadside. My first thoughts were to use a combination of photographs from different places I’ve made through the years, but at the end this one taken from New York High Line seemed perfect for the feelings that the poem imprinted on me. The final image is a ghost city; abandoned machines, a flag and some other elements combined with the tones of blue and effects of the cyanotype. Also each print is different and it is something I was looking for, the silkscreened poem has a background that is constantly changing in seek of reinforce the strength of this powerful literary piece by Eléna Rivera.” – Oswaldo García
