Sol Mateo

Born in 1956 in Bolivia
Lives and works in Berlin, Germany


“Photography allows me to break ethics’ territories in favor of aesthetics”, has said Sol Mateo to Arte Al Límite. The artist creates scenes with a theatrical touch looking for the emotional and aesthetic side of everyday situation where sorrow, barbarity, dispossession and pleasure take precedence. Then, he photographs them and the results are scenes with uncertain timings that embody human kind’s perversity across history.
