“The places I’ve chosen to photograph for this project are concealed or out of bounds (at least to the general public), but most significantly, they are used to contain and preserve valuable objects. Some of these sites for example, include storage areas from major art museums. I have for some time been interested in photographing these ‘hidden’ spaces as a way to reveal some aspect of their functionality, but in fact, what draws me to these environments is really their inaccessibility, their mystery. They characterize a disciplinary and rigorous formality, which I find visually arresting, yet at the same time they feel intimate and familiar. There’s also the general significance: they personify the obsession associated with our need to protect and preserve our artistic history as well as our own cultural identity imbedded in these precious objects.” Luis Mallo
