Goicolea, Anthony (1971)

Anthony Goiocolea made his artistic debut in the late 1990s and has since explored themes ranging from personal history and identity, to cultural tradition and heritage, to alienation and displacement. The Cuban American photographer uses digitally manipulated, provocative and unsettling self-portraits and landscapes. His early works featured groups of young boys - composites of the artist himself - performing bizarre and fantasy rituals. Although most of his recent images do not feature human beings, their presence is mysteriously and ambiguously evoked. Revealing an obsolescent and dark environment, Anthony Goiocolea’s cinematic photographs tend to reflect the nostalgia for his family’s native estranged and almost mythical country.
