By Arturo Soto

Rigorous photographic typologies reveal and suppress in equal measures. They shield the picture from contingency and intuition, in exchange of an acute assessment of the subject. They are a paradox, and should be treated as such.

The expectations of this genre have not been fulfilled here, for I have deviated from its procedures in order to incorporate the intriguing prospects of the real world.

My interest lies in questioning the location of meaning within a typology. Is it in the authority that accumulation exerts when adhering to a constraining methodology, or is it in the revealed subjectivity of the photographer that the apparatus can never entirely conceal?
