COMMENTARY Rosa Basurto takes images and turns them into short stories. The unique world she creates is one that feels very personal, unique and a testament to her invention and artistic ambition. They are short stories with a surreal perception. Whatever that means. Well the surreal is never meant to be logical. Or explainable. Rosa continues in a vein all of her. Her own very special world.
