“Menos que cero” by JULIO JIMENEZ CORRAL

Julio Jimenez Corral is an architect from Madrid who centers his work on multidisciplinarity and experimentation, combining his main professional activity with his passion for photography from 2005. 

This hobby he started as a way of documenting special moments soon became a graphic work that features not only architectural references but also cinematographic and literary influences, as any of his captures show.

The two years he spent at UCLA and Julia Dean Workshop in Los Angeles delving into the photography field had an enormous influence in his work. It is very clear in his collection ‘Menos que 0’ whose leitmotif is the homonymous novel by Breat Easton Ellis (one of the maximum exponents of the X Generation), presented in 2013 at La Fresh Gallery in Madrid.

‘Menos que 0’ is an invitation to reflect on emptiness as he captures the decline of abandoned places. Julio Jimenez Corral projects the neglection of society of anything that is not longer useful for consumption

 ‘Menos que 0’ is an invitation to reflect on emptiness as he captures the decline of abandoned places. Julio Jimenez Corral projects the neglection of society of anything that is not longer useful for consumption. The lifeless elements are the true players in this masterpiece and unmistakables telltales of the course of time and its own meltdown.
