The violence in the streets, the political repression, the popular struggles, the everyday grotesque are exhibited through images that are certainly forceful. Humour is not absent in Carlos Dominguez's photography, but it is sometimes acid humour, corrosive, neurotic as in the scene of the outcast who sleeps in the street under an advertising poster with the caption "asi es mi tierra" (this is my land). At other times it is a less aggressive, playful humour, which reveals the ridicule in the most solemn personalities. In this we notice a certain entomological vocation of the photographer Dominguez.

The series of photographs of a former dictator of Peru promotes a serene reflection on the decline of power, on its futility when it is not at the service of great ideals; on how oblivion consumes, like a black stain, all splendour.
