En la cima sólo hay lugar para uno  (“There’s only room for one at the top”) from Los Caprichos: after Goya: platinum palladium prints inspired by the 18th-century satirical masterpiece.

“Caprichos” means literally: whims. Images from this series are photographed from video source and printed in platinum palladium. In keeping with the spirit of Goya’s mordant titles, I’ve given each image a caption — in Spanish.
