Offset centerlines, graphic effects, and the power of shadows elaborate a poetic universe where the feeling of strangeness mingles with that of a raw reality. The powerful balance of her compositions reveals skies saturated with birds, funny and unexpected situations where chickens wait quietly on market stalls, where pigeons compete with monkeys; elsewhere they are moving clouds that look like real organisms alive with smooth and fluid movements.
For Iturbide, live birds represent freedom. But neither death nor a certain surrealistic spirit are ever far away. Dead birds lined up on a sidewalk, predatory birds waiting for their prey in the middle of the desert, crows flying over dry trees, inert tits sitting on the eyes of a woman: Iturbide’s photographs are often enigmatic paintings.
The organic dimension, linked to the blood, to the flesh, to the mud, sweat or soil, also permeates the most of her pictures. The photographer maintains a relationship particular to reality by capturing singular moments. From India to Mexico, from the sea to the urban terraces, seagulls, eagles, pigeons, herons, and crows invade the space of men or slip into it unexpected and lonely.
