Pepe Cañabate develops his work through projects in series which arise from the analysis of the reality close to him from diverse perspectives. The series “Onco +” (2008) came into being as the result of a personal experience, when he was diagnosed with cancer in 2007. As is customary in his work, the images are in black and white - in this case the fruit of the analogue process - and he could not check the result until finishing the film. The different takes are an unfiltered testimony of the whole process he underwent from the treatment to the operation to fight the disease. In this series the slanted or partial shots remit one from things objective towards things subjective, with each composition as a fragment, a pact with time to face memory going beyond the present.
