Madrid’s Atocha station was formerly known as Mediodía (Midday), as it was the city’s Southbound railway hub. This is the location where David Hornillos worked between 2011 and 2014, during the central hours of the day. Mediodía presents an enveloping world of orange brick bathed in a vibrant light that irresistibly draws in and traps all living beings like a dragnet. With the colour orange in a leading role, David’s work faces the viewer against this brick wall, drawing him into the atmosphere of a stifling and hypnotic mental state.
Born in Madrid in 1974, Hornillos studied photography in the Blank Paper School in Madrid. He is a member of the Collective Photoaplauso.
Founded in 2010 and based in Madrid, Dalpine is a publishing house and a bookstore focused on selling self-published photobooks and books produced by independent publishers.
