¡Y tu los creyó!” (“And you believed them!”) From Los Caprichos: after Goya, a series of platinum palladium prints inspired by the 18th-century master Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes’ well known album of eighty satirical aquatints, published in 1799.

‘Caprichos’ means literally: whims. Images from this series are photographed from video source and are printed on Revere Platinum. In keeping with the spirit of Goya’s mordant commentary, I’ve given each of the images a caption — in Spanish.
