Fernández de Rodrigo takes a conceptual approach. Using photography, he studies the human condition in relation to their surroundings with respect to different “realities”. In his photography he transforms everyday scenes by exemplifying subtle peculiarities within the ordinary. Every object of daily life becomes a jumping off point where the human capacity of belief – or its profane counterpart – is unleashed to ascribe new meaning or intention to an object. Each photograph questions the encounter with the object and the connection human beings create with their surroundings.
Born in 1980 in Argentina, Emiliano began his career studying Forestry and Fine Arts at the National University of La Plata, Buenos Aires after which he finally decided to dedicate his career to photography. He studied at the Argentinean School of Photography and participated in workshops with recognised argentinean and international photographers. His works have been exhibited among the others in: Buenos Aires, Córdoba, La Plata (Argentina), Adelaide (Australia), Cali (Colombia) and Berlin (Germany).
Between 2008 and 2011 Emiliano travelled through New Zealand, Australia, India, Burma, Thailand, Singapore, Morocco, Spain, Portugal and Germany, where he worked on and developed his work The Links, awarded by the Centre of Photography in Montevideo (Uruguay) and made into a publication in 2012.
