Crónicas del Nasobuco
(Chronicles of the 'Nasobuco')

Todo queda en los ojos. Con disparos limitados, el azar de la calle, el miedo al contagio, la no natural separación de los cuerpos. De ahí nace esta serie que aún está en pleno desarrollo. Todo ocurre en Cuba, primero en la Escuela Internacional de Cine y TV, San Antonio de los Baños, donde fueron detectados algunos de los primeros casos de COVID-19 de Cuba, y donde hubo una estricta cuarentena durante dos meses. Y la segunda etapa ocurre en La Habana, donde están la mayor parte de los contagios del país.

Pero hay algo curioso: Cuba ya estaba preparada para una pandemia. La disciplina social, el habitual desabastecimiento producto de las sanciones y el bloqueo internacional, hace que este país maneje de manera natural una crisis social como esta pandemia. En los ojos hay seguridad. Hay fuerza. Hay resistencia.

Everything stays in the eyes. With limited shots, the chance of the street, the fear of contagion, the unnatural separation of the bodies. This is the origin of this series, which is still in full development. Everything happens in Cuba, first at the International Film and TV School, San Antonio de los Baños, where some of the first cases of COVID-19 from Cuba were detected, and where there was a strict quarantine for two months. And the second stage occurs in Havana, where most of the country's infections are. But there is something curious: Cuba was already prepared for a pandemic. Social discipline, the usual shortage resulting from sanctions and the international blockade, makes this country naturally handle a social crisis like this pandemic. In the eyes there is security. There is strength. There is resistance.

eXtras

Exhibida en: El marco del Festival Internacional de Cine de La Habana; Museo de Arte Moderno de Cartagena, en el marco del 53 Festival de Cine de Cartagena; próximamente del 14 al 31 de enero de 2013, una muestra de eXtras en la Cinemateca Distrital de Bogotá.
Para celebrar con imágenes, luces y colores el cumpleaños 25 de la Escuela Internacional de Cine y TV (EICTV), el fotógrafo colombiano Nicolás Ordóñez Carrillo presenta su serie más reciente, que se titula eXtras y se dedica a visibilizar algunos de los egresados de esta institución, a sus preciados maestros, y por supuesto a la infinidad de universos posibles, imaginarios, reales, delirantes que seguirán erigiéndose en las inmediaciones de la finca San Tranquilino (...)

eXtras: A portrait of Cuba’s unique international film school

Nicolás Ordóñez Carrillo is an unassuming Colombian photographer who has been studying and now working with the International School of Film and TV (EICTV) in San Antonio de los Baños, Cuba. To celebrate the school’s 25th anniversary he has prepared this series, eXtras, aimed at throwing a spotlight on the institution’s graduates, teachers, and, of course, the countless possible universes--imaginary, real, rapturous--that will continue to be forged in the vicinity of the San Tranquilino farm.

This is simply brilliant on so many levels and demonstrates a creativity, attention to detail and imagination that goes a long way to explain why the school has been so successful.
“..the protagonists of these pictures normally work behind the cameras, but this time agreed to being looked at, observed, haloed by Nicolás’s lens, and gladly took on the role of postmodern demiurges on the alert for the recreation of powerful myths in film, television, advertising, audiovisual communication..” Joel del Rio

Glamour en los escombros

Contra la pared

Exhibida en: Casa Gaia, La Habana, Cuba; Revista El Malpensante; Revista Digital Papel de Colgadura.
La serie propone una mirada incisiva a la sociedad cubana contemporánea. Lo hace desde las marcas culturales que porta el vestir y el discurso de la pose y lo bello. Una pose que devela  “el aquí y el ahora” del cubano “de a pie”. Un ser signado por el decadentismo epocal en el que subsiste y que deja traslucir las huellas en su propia imagen.  Por tanto, la exposición amalgama, sin contradicción alguna, lo grotesco y lo lúdico con la tragicidad soterrada (...)
