Delhi Photo Festival 2015: Arturo Betancourt's "Perfect Citizen" series

Delhi Photo Festival

This photographic essay is not meant to be a mere illustration of the harsh reality, but an essay of the critical unconsciousness of individuals, submerged by social inertia in apathy to all historical matters that surround them. 

Arturo Betancourt has been working as a freelance photographer since 1993, and has ventured into various areas such as documentary, landscape and architecture to contemporary photography.

He holds a Masters Degree in Creative Design from Mexico and specialized in Contemporary Photography in Spain. His work has been exhibited numerous times in different museums, galleries and cultural venues, in several countries like Argentina, Denmark, Germany, Iceland, India, Luxembourg, Mexico, Norway, Portugal, Singapore, Spain and the United States.

The photographs try to confront the spectator between the importance of ‘being’ and not just ‘existing’, to reflect in those actions that turn the individual insensitive and as part of a society used to its own routines.

These images seek to remove the inner consciousness and resurrect “the human being with a voice and sight, with the ability to hear and thus, one who possesses a criteria.”
