Enrique Manchon is a photographer surveying scenic layers, and an educator examining language patterns, Enrique is a long-time resident of Vancouver. He studied Fine Arts and Hispanic Literature at the University of British Columbia, where he taught for many years. His initiation in photography and the visual arts was influenced by the work and teaching of Fred Herzog and the group of photo based conceptualists that were evolving in the city, and within the university, at the time. His images tend to reflect the external effects of modernization: global consumerism, urban evolution with its contrasting cycles of growth and decay, social marginalization and disconnection. He conceives the photographic act as the suggestive fragmentation of space and is interested in the narrative and expressive dimensions generated by sets of inter-referential photographs.
