Biography

Iñaki Bonillas uses a combination of conceptual, autobiographical and archival photographic practice to explore light, the lapse of time, and editing processes. He creates installations that resemble taxidermy cases, systems of taxonomy, or quasi-scientific studies, relying heavily on photographic editing processes and the manipulation of lighting to alter the possibilities of the photographs and to challenge standard documentary practices in photography. Since 2003, Bonillas has worked from his family photo archives, altering images of his grandfather, family members, and others from the past.
