Raimond Chaves




Enviado especial (Special correspondent). 2007

Raimond Chaves becomes a reporter accompanying the journalists of Cartagena's newspaper "La Verdad" in their daily search for news, even attending their editorial meetings. Starting out from the same documentary input, Chaves makes his own newspaper where the news is transmuted by his own subjectivity, social conscience and political bias. The printed newspaper is also used in a series of drawings made with black paint, concealing part of the news so as to highlight specific contents.
