Proceed to the Route / Tania Franco Klein
Material Art Fair 2019
Almanaque
Mexico City, Mexico

Tania Franco Klein, one of Artpil’s 30 Under 30 Women Photographers 2018 as well as a recipient of Aesthetica Art Prize, just closed out her series Proceed to the Route at Material Art Fair 2019. Almanaque, dedicated to contemporary photography, celebrating their 2nd year anniversary with a space in Mexico City’s Colonia Roma, represented her work.

“My main character is emotion” she says. But her subjects, the women Franco Klein builds into character studies, like figures in film stills, seem beyond emotion. They have seen too much. They see too much. They are ready for a change, to press beyond the sheath of solitude, to make the most of their time, which is all the time they have left. When they are not performing, they are not visible. And when they are not visible, the sun is setting.

In her recent photographs, Franco Klein appears to take up the mantle of the masters: the archetypes of Cindy Sherman’s Untitled Film Stills and the Hollywood lighting of Philip-Lorca diCorcia’s Hustlers, the shocking colors of William Eggleston and the mysterious, glossy poses of Jimmy DeSana.
