José Risso (Uruguay 1970) is attracted by the rustic Uruguayan rural landscape. He works with analog photography in a classic formalism, both in practice and in the aesthetic look. Interested in laboratory processes, he usually performs the copying of his black and white photographs in his own laboratory. With a vocation for solitary landscapes, he portrays places detained in time, preserving and rescuing memory, with a contemporary reading of painting masters such as Pedro Figari or Nicolás García Uriburu.
His work has been exhibited among others, at the Cultural Center of Spain in Montevideo, Zorrilla Museum, Atchugarry Manantiales Foundation, FOLA Buenos Aries, Lima, Angola, Sweden and Vienna.
