A hub is an interconnecting centre which, in the field of computer networks, means collision by definition.
The Hub is an interpretation made from the collisions that come from my interest of connecting subjects such as religion, violence and death. This interpretation is embodied in a collection of images that have been created and edited with the clear intention of generating a field of tension that allows no space for rest, calm, or serenity. Neither for any faith or hope.
The project offers the reader this chance of collision, inviting him, via the enjoyment of the images, to participate with his own conflicts and contradictions.
The work of Roger Guaus is always related to the personal research, especially balancing the conceptual and poetical level at the same time, often dealing with intimacy, with identity or with his relationship with the others.
In this field, he presented works like Diaris d’un fotògraf (2009-2010), where he tries to kill the mites that carry his role as a photographer; The believer (PES/01, Standard Illustrated Books, 2011), where he shows the incomprehension that his mother feels about his deep interest on arts and photography; L’inassolible - The unreachable (Ca l’Isidret Edicions, 2012), a comment on the relationship that he had with his father and a homage to his person; Persones que em recorden a mon pare 1948-2008 (2012), a series of images that he downloaded from internet of people that reminds him to his father, and Diari íntim (2007-2047), a work where he pushes himself to face real intimate stuff like bank and notarial documents (not photographs). The Hub (Ca l’Isidret Edicions, 2013) also belongs to this corpus of work.
Meanwhile, in 2012 he created Ca l’Isidret Edicions with the photographers Juan Diego Valera and Aleix Plademunt to publish their own works (www.calisidretedicions.cat).
