With this project I wanted to make a personal approach to the essence of a terrible time. I re-visit the past to question and ritualize it. Taking dark emotions that are often neglected into the frontline.
I started this project during one night of May 2013 by taking impromptu pictures of the place and the things that surrounded me.
Two years later (2015) I return and fill the frame with the same spaces, allowing my current mindstate and perception create a visual contrast. Documenting a process.
Here’s a new addition to the characterization series I’m working on where I treat my own skin as a sketchbook.
I create characters based on my drawings and sketches by designing the make-up and styling, as well as the atmosphere in which they live. Finally I take these creatures in front of the camera, where they manifest.
From an impromptu process that I recorded for you (video below), Red was born.
Dug up these from my artwork vault to showcase them on the blog. Some of these appear on the internet for the first time, today!).
I took these back in 2008, inspired by film noir and voyeurism. Thinking of self portraiture as a method for transformation and story telling. Concealed between reflections, glass, smoke or a figure; What you think you know can be misunderstood.
Here are the photos from the blue impromptu shooting with Joel Valle. The druid theme stuck, so here’s to the magic of nature!
This is part of a photography project I’m working on. I combine make up and photography to create characters based off from sketches.
These photos are from 2013 and there’s still a lot of work left to actually release the whole series but I wanted to share the whole Sadness is Golden set here on my blog.
Today’s trip through corrosion was captured within the walls of La Princesa Prison in San Juan. It was built in 1837 and you can still breathe the solitude and bitterness of this place.
I’ll start the week with a showcase. A series of photos that contemplate not only the beauty of corrosion but also the serenity and solitude of these spaces.
A collection of flower pictures and a flowery playlist ♫.
I saw the moon! I wish I had the appropriate lens at the time to capture it. However, nothing like appreciating it’s beauty with a bare eye. I dedicate this to all those that slept under it’s light: Mom, Olga, Ray, Carmen… (to mention a few).
Spring is showing it’s colours.
