edwin sanchez

columbian artist edwin sanchez says he doesn't consider his work as art. "instead i believe they are just projects and immediate actions that generate strong meanings." sometimes his projects are recorded with camera. i especially love one on the top called desired objects, photographs of thieves shoplifting from a store in medellín. have a look at more of edwin's projects here.

[all edwin sanchez. top: desired objects (photographic record of thieves captured at a store in medellín, colombia). 2007. bottom: subtraction exercise (1m2 of bricks from an important avenue in bogotá has been subtracted by the artist. 2004.]
