Photographer Nacho Ormaechea captures street life and then uses the silhouettes of his human subjects to offer the viewer a portal into another world. The juxtaposition of what we see around the people silhouetted and what we see in the world within them is brilliant and causes us to reflect on assumptions we make about strangers, the vastness of a person’s inner life and experience and creates an awareness about how we take our daily lives for granted so that our routines become dull. Ormaechea’s art urges us to continue to see possibility, creativity and beauty in the people and things – even the colors and textures – around us.
