Anthony Goicolea

Detention Series

While Goicolea’s work from 1999-2000 found its genesis primarily in personal experiences and suburban nostalgia, the new pieces seem to derive their inspiration from the harsh realities of childhood existence in institutional and represive environments which are often parralleled with references to periods of war, pestilence and famine. Where the earlier photographs often pitted child against child in either literal or metaphoric terms, here the kids seem to be fighting both the elements and a generalized outside threat.
