    André Catarino's thematic concerns, exploring subjects such as human-inflected landscapes and late capitalist ruins, and appropriation of other media composition techniques and reproduction systems (especially past photographic and cinematographic techniques) puts André Catarino in a central vein of Western thought and art-related concerns, which connect him to diverse names and oeuvres such as Atget's, Walter Benjamin's and the Bechers's.

    'Landscape,' as of course, is always already a human category, a section and separative bloc acted upon the natural biosphere, one that reveals cultural conditions. The portability, as it were, of landscape creates, paradoxically, a distance from, and a classification of, nature. Catarino's particular choice of represented scenes – trainways, mining structures, abandoned civilian buildings or military installations, monumental ruins, or vestiges of abandoned industrial and capitalist goods – reinforce the coherence of the artist's research. Point in fact, André Catarino's insistence on the theme of ruins and destruction, frequently through fire (which allies itself neatly and pertinently with his choice of materials and chromatic outlook), links him in many other ways to the work of German philosopher Walter Benjamin.
