About Abril M Barruecos

During my childhood there were two constants in my life:Firstly, the continuous upheaval of moving back and forth from oneplace to another, Mexico to Costa Rica and from one city to another.Secondly, a familiarity for an old book of Life Magazine’s BestPhotographs, that created in me a sense of belonging, combinedwith a nostalgia and yearning for the unknown.These factors may not be the best explanation for my work, but theyare inextricably linked to my roots in photography, roots that havenow expanded and evolved, growing constantly in to my way ofseeing and capturing the world that surrounds me.As I have more practice in the art of communicating by images ratherthan by words, I will finish by borrowing a phrase that, in my mind,sums up my work, or at least my intention with every photograph:‘I did not come to explain the world, I just came to play;I do not want to judge the man, the man I want to tell’.Facundo Cabral.
