Nacho Ormaechea’s amazing series Street Memories combines traditional photography with collage techniques, Via Visualnews
Spanish graphic designer and artist Nacho Ormaechea contrasts photos in a way that gets your brain ticking. By filling the silhouette of people in urban settings with a clashing image, often from nature, he evokes the idea of memories or deeper yet, replaced energy. If it’s true that 98% of the atoms in our bodies are replaced with new ones every year, it’s interesting to think what forms they’ve taken before and Ormaechea’s photo collages offer a hypothesis. The photographer, who has lived and worked in Paris for the past decade has always been fascinated with people watching, thus preferring cities, “which [he] see(s) as perfect theaters full of inspiring yet anonymous characters.”
Assigning random memories to each figure, Ormaechea provides a beautiful contrast between an urban setting and the other experiences a person has had. He states, “Within those urban landscapes, the inhabitants and their opaque lives are the roots of my conceptual projects; those works call upon the viewer’s experiences and induce moments of introspection.” See more of Ormaechea’s fascinating photo collages on his website.
