Ricardo Cases, El porque de las naranjas
At first sight, reality appears chaotic and anarchic. If events have any kind of logic to them, it lies well hidden behind a surface of banality so thick it makes it invisible. And yet, at certain exceptional moments, life slackens and reveals itself. In El porqué de la naranjas [Why Oranges?], Spanish photographer Ricardo Cases reveals moments that might otherwise go unnoticed.
Situated in his immediate surroundings, the fertile region of Levante in Spain, the work is not a portrait of Levante per se, but of the spirit of Levante – and one that reflects the spirit of the country as a whole.
