Studio Sessions: Carlos Jiménez Cahua


Welcome to the first of many interviews that Matthew Kuhlman has conducted with various artists from the Boston area! We'll be publishing them twice a month, and hope you like them. You can download them directly from us, just listen to them, and soon, subscribe to them via apple.

Carlos Jimenez Cahua is a photographer and 2012 MFA graduate from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Several of his pieces use exposure and distance increments to reveal the number of possibilities that can be achieved from the exact same subject, while other works more experimentally contemplate creating images within the limitations of the photographic process given certain variables. Often his work moves beyond creating an image to creating an object, taking into account the physical properties of the paper and light used to create photographs. Listen as Carlos explains his thought process and the decisions he makes in creating his work.
