This week’s SOTW and feature pick is the portfolio of @nientesugar where he shakes up the traditional black and white aesthetic. There is a real energy here. The images rattle and feel like they can shake lose from the boundaries of their mobile projections. The layers by which he achieves this ranges from content which at times verges on Bruce Gilden’s territory and a context which is an arrangement of contrasts and degrees of emotions which produce a rich slice of reportage from his neck of the woods. We move from surf to city, from sand to cement – a metaphoric catching of a wave. The selections are choppy and bump at the board with a force that reminds you that one is in control – but only just. His portfolio is short (161 images), so well worth inspecting image by image where you will find surprises in the details. Enjoy!
