The photographs in Disorder by Borja Ballbé are a powerful account of reality, interpreted through loneliness, depression and anxiety.
In Disorder, Borja Ballbé draws inspiration from the great American road photographers, like Walker Evans, Robert Frank, Stephen Shore or, their contemporary counterpart, Alec Soth. Images verging on the banal of brothels, roadside bars, deserted gas stations, empty tables, tall glasses or impersonal bedrooms, all offering a meticulous vision of a process of self-awareness transferred in those instants that are frozen in time. A personal narrative that transcends the intimate to become a universal tale of loneliness, of the human tendency to hanker after meaning, to keep running towards an answer we believe is waiting around the next bend in the path.
