“The images shown here represent ‘traces’ of territories, people and objects. They are vestiges, evidences, marks that the artist has captured following diverse interests and experiences. There is a connection between his work and the American street photography in which images emerge following intuition and instinct as the artist goes through physical space. It is walking without destination with the camera being an integral and constant part of his daily life. This spontaneity and improvisation are contrary to the idea of narrative, an idea that does not exist in the work of Miguel Refresco, since it limits him and withdraws power from the very images that he builds.”
Susana Rodrigues, curator of the exhibition Trace by Miguel Refresco.
