Big Fish, a short film about his father, the Mexican artist José Nava, please go to:

"Nava’s photography work “negotiates ‘the foreign’ within everyday life…. An air of curiosity saturates these images, showing their real intimacy and the utter distance of them from each other. Present and past, invention and community, failure and tradition, melancholy and distance, anger and intimacy all find a place in the pictures without closure... It is the ‘something’ that aches to speak within these images."

David Bate, photographer & critic
