Alejandra Burciaga, more known for her artistic name Ale Bu, descends originally from Mexico. The photographer lives in Barcelona since 2009, where she came looking for a life full of creativity, and since then the city has not disappointed her.
Currently Ale Bu collaborates with Arts Centre Mutuo as a photographer, and with Weedmaps Spain in Marketing and Photography.
What Ale mostly likes about analogic photography, and especially Polaroid photos, is how something which is so real, has such a dreamy, etheric result, of time without time. Ale likes to think that analogue photos are like poetry, the instantaneity in hand. In her own words:
“I want to cherish the texture of days as sharply as possible and photography lets me. It was becoming like this slowly but steadily, until it became the prism through which I see life; and it is the common thread which weaves the stories together.
The camera turns inward and outward, sometimes being a mirror of the most intimate and poetic moments … so many lenses that allow me to open my eyes and look closely to what is happening around me.
Sometimes you have to purify the soul. Shake sorrows between shooting and poetry.
Sometimes poetry is the only refuge … with this phrase began this story. With a love pain that became a tissue between that little black book full of Gabriela Aguirre’s letters and her “Itineraries”. ”
Lo que mas gusta a Ale de la fotografía analógica, en especial de la Polaroid, es el hecho de que algo tan real que prácticamente no se puede manipular, tiene un resultado de ensueño, de tiempos etéreos, del tiempo sin tiempo. A Ale le gusta pensar que las fotos analógicos son como la poesía, el instante en la mano.
“Deseo atesorar la textura de los días lo más nítido posible y la fotografía me lo permite. Se fue adhiriendo a los días lenta pero constantemente, hasta ser el prisma con el que veo vida y es ese hilo conductor entre historias que se tejen solas.
