The context of Teo Esguerra’s works mostly revolve around memory, everyday experiences, and personal thoughts. It is important for him to do honest work that he truly understands. In his practice he interprets fragmentary memories, experiences and realizations, in a metaphorical way. The paint is the representative of himself. While the photo is the contribution of reality that he can never fully control.
It is important that photographs be integrated into his works. Because a photograph is a tangible and concrete recording of a memory, something that one cannot fully control. It is also important to note that, shooting in film, developing and printing his works in the darkroom as much as possible, is an essential part of the process. For this also helps him to slow down, and meditate further in his image making.
