Gabriela Torres Ruiz

In her work, photographer and architect Gabriela Torres Ruiz shows how silence can be captured photographically and the associations it engenders.

With a fine sense for the poetic interplay between light, color, and space, her Silence series juxtaposes landscape motifs and interior photographs in diptychs. The depicted decay of the buildings alongside enchanted alpine and forest landscapes make reference to the cycle between architecture and nature, which ultimately reclaims its environment.

Her book, Silence, is published by Hatje Cantz Verlag, Germany. Introduction by Timothy Persons, Berlin/Helsinki. To find out more and to purchase the book, click here.
