César Ordóñez, photographer and video-artist, develops his activity mainly between Tokyo (his city lab) and Barcelona (his hometown). He uses the universality of visual language as a tool to reflect on today’s world, the beauty of existence and its fragility. Exploring how our thoughts and attitudes influence our environment, and the daily evolution of the societies in which we live, and vice versa. With a vital, intimate and often introspective style, his works move between the reality and the metaphor, between the lived moments and the dreamed ones.
He has exhibited in Spain, Mexico, France, Portugal, Russia, Japan, South Korea, China and Peru. He treasures more than 15 solo exhibitions and more than 50 group ones. Since 2012 it highlights his participation in Tokyo-Ga.org, an extensive project about the Japanese capital, which brings together 100 international photographers. His works are part of important art collections such as: Fundació Foto Colectania (Barcelona, Spain), Auer Photo Foundation (Geneva, Switzerland) and Unicaja Foundation (Malaga, Spain), and several private collections in Spain, France, Russia and Mexico. His latest book published is Tokyo Blur.
