Vienen (They’re coming)
From Los Caprichos: after Goya, an artist’s book in the making. It’s inspired by Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes’ well known album of eighty satirical aquatints, which the artist published in 1799, after a debilitating illness.
‘Caprichos’ means literally: whims. Images from this series are photographed from video source on a 4×5 Crown Graphic press camera and printed in platinum-palladium (a traditional process) on Bergger paper (Cot 320).
In keeping with the spirit of Goya’s sharp-edged commentary, I’ve given each of the images a caption — in Spanish.
