    About The Work

    To designate the reality, Buddhism uses the word Sunya, which means empty. It is also the name given to the number zero. The observer fills the reality that without their presence it would be empty, in the same way that the mathematician can’t work without a number: the zero, a kind of antithesis of a number. The photographer César Ordóñez proposes us an approach to Japanese reality from the term ashimoto–a polysemic concept that can refer to the foot, or to a part of the foot. In the same manner, these images have many connotations: they suggest more than they show, and show just what we need to get an idea of where they come from and where the subjects are going.
