Jon Cazenave has an impressive curriculum, both at an exhibition level, and in published books, scholarships and teaching. He is well known in the field of artistic photography for his inclination to go towards the origin, an origin that he places in a time-space much earlier than analog photography, rather at a time prior to the idea of ??the landscape, as looking for Represent an image prior to any concept. That is why it is not surprising that he was called to participate in the European Eyes on Japan project, as if this Asian culture understood this search perfectly.

The UR AITZ exhibition merges photography and pictorial gesture with the aim of approaching the Paleolithic culture. Cazenave's challenge is to develop a symbolic order that represents the balance and chaos that coexist simultaneously with nature.

In UR AITZ Cazenave uses intervention with natural pigments both on landscape photographs - in a kind of homage to the original gesture of man in the cave - and on stones; a gesture by which the artist delves into the importance of the bodily experience - of walking - and of his encounter with nature.

The sample includes a set of images made from cyanotype. Through this alchemical process directed by the sway of the waves, forms emerge that, from the author's hand, suggest and articulate new landscapes. In the chromatic gradation of cyanotype, the keys of the exhibition converge: from the matrix black of the darkness of the cave and the red of the earth, to the blue that opens to the oceanic immensity.
