"Madrid’s Atocha station was formerly known as Mediodía (Midday), as it was the city’s Southbound railway hub. This is the location where David Hornillos worked between 2011 and 2014, during the central hours of the day.
Mediodía presents an enveloping world of orange brick bathed in a vibrant light that irresistibly draws in and traps all living beings like a dragnet.
With the colour orange in a leading role, David’s work faces the viewer against this brick wall, drawing him into the atmosphere of a stifling and hypnotic mental state."
A really surprising and beautiful book, where the orange color, and - in contrast - the black paper, do play an important role part. The images, the moments, the "living beings" caught by David Hornillos make of this book a really intriguing and mysterious piece, something visually really strong.

Faces, stories and landscapes are all framed and fixed forever within the four corners of the print. Nevertheless, it would be wonderful if these corners could be somehow opened, thus breaking the perimeter of the photograph and letting the...
