In 2004 Denisa Kera wrote about the paintings of Daniel Pitín describing them as specific pictorial “critique and image interpretation.”1 In this she drew on his series of images devoted to Alfred Hitchcock films. In the years after she wrote the aforementioned text, Pitín went on to expand his repertoire of themes and approaches. In addition to work with the already existent image, references to specific places that he had recorded photographically during trips began to appear. From those “Hitchcock lessons” he still held on to an interest about the construction of the scenery in which the image scene takes place.
