Malaga – Paracosmic Houses, by Katharina Fitz
“Paracosmos: a uniquely created, imaginary world of fantasy, built by the powers of our own imagination.” photographer Katharina Fitz suggests for the series Paracosmic Houses. Originally from Austria she created this series by capturing elements from the villages Pedregalejo and el Palo in Malaga.
“Over the years, the neighbourhood of the fishing villages has been transformed into a tourist honey pot and is today a mixture of ancient tradition and a classy sightseeing destination.” she explains. In the series the leading actor are the houses in isolation. This depicts the transformation of the areas from fishing villages to tourist attractions. Synthesis between old and new. “I create my own paracosmos, an artificial and lively world in combination with a social and urban sociological background“. Enjoy.
