On each project, Navas shifts his approach to his subjects and topics, but always maintaining his own gaze. The starting point for ‘El Norte’ were the family anecdotes which his grandmother Sagrario told him, those becomes in a deep revision of Spanish national identity. The daily, normal, and close events also abound in ‘Linde’ where he explores the outskirts of Madrid (his host city) after the rise and fall of the real estate boom. But perhaps ‘Yolanda’ is his most personal proposal: the reconstruction of an era and a generation through the love story of his aunt and uncle, in order to dig into the shared emotions of youthfulness.
‘Mr. Stupid’ is his latest project, a visual investigation of the identities created by the market forces. In this work, Navas steps away from his past languages by using photogrammetry to showcase the reality of a charming character in a visual diary form. This project also started another adventure: ‘Unlimited Prints’ a new format to distribute affordable photographic prints, published with the support of La Kursala and Gobierno de Navarra.
