..Réjoinder and VariationAlberto Martín
..In 1962 Ed Ruscha started to take a series of photographs of gas stations along the mythical and iconized
..Route 66, in states such as Arizona, New Mexico, Texas or California. A year later, in 1963, the artist published
..these photographs in the form of a modest book under the title of Twentysix Gasoline Stations. This first work
..was followed by other small books of photographs serially produced by Ruscha... » Read more..

..American LonelinessManuel Vila
..Bergera sympathizes with the places, floats a lay prayer for those spaces that do not enjoy the solemnity of other
..architectures. They are not cathedrals, they are not museums, they are not castles, they are not great mansions.
..They are not Europe, they are America. Therefore, they are places halfway between architecture and
..nothingness, halfway between the empty lot and the hut, between the ghost and the human being, between
..the zombie and the person. » Read more

..On Bergera’s Cross-Cultural UrbanscapesSibel Bozdogan
..The Nobel laureate Turkish novelist Orhan Pamuk observes, via Walter Benjamin, that the connection 
..between a city and its inhabitants are always mediated by memories whereas the enthusiasm for seeing 
..the city from the outside and for relishing the picturesque and the exotic belongs to the visitor. Inaki Bergera’s 
..exquisitely paired photographs of New York and Istanbul testify to precisely such a palpable enthusiasm 
..for looking and seeing 'from the outside'... » Read more

..Ways of LookingFrancisco Mangado
..There are many ways of looking at architecture, but few ways to truly see it. To see architecture requires 
..that the viewer consider and contemplate the subject of analysis. He or she must enjoy a careful and 
..attentive understanding of the object. The attitude implicit in this action is imperative to create and appreciate 
..architecture. Here, Iñaki Bergera presents a series of photographs of the buildings that have interested him 
..on his American visits... » Read more

..Urban SubstanceCarlos Cánovas
..It is inevitable to start underlining the double condition, architect and photographer, of Iñaki Bergera. 
..I have never done it but in cases such as his, one has the temptation –somehow venomous, I confess– 
..of asking him what was first, the chicken or the egg. I suspect, beyond the inconvenience of my question 
..–now it will be said to be politically incorrect– that in the course of his life both activities must be interweaved 
..to the point of becoming a whole from which one of them can’t be removed without impunity... » Read more

..Craftwork and Mechanical ReproductionJorge Latorre
..Iñaki Bergera is architect and photographer, and these activities can’t be separated within his daily tasks. 
..Since it deals with the kind of pictures in which technique is privileged over craftwork, photography has given 
..some of its best results in alliance with architecture. This is a “constructive” art, tactile, made, like photography,
..out of space and light; that, nowadays, explores a kind of formal and structured beauty, susceptible to a look 
..both humble and sophisticated, as the one required by photography... » Read more
