Enter your It is the result of a journey into the heart of darkness, a journey of introspection.
I started working on this project in 2012, when my wife, Montse, died.
Immersed in the darkness I reached bottom, the darkest part of my heart. I felt like there was no way out.
The memory of Montse made me look for a reason to move on. And when you find yourself immersed in darkness, there is nothing better than looking for light.
I have been researching and working on light and shadows for years.
So, with the camera and some flashlights, I began to illuminate my darkness, my shadows, my fears, my subconscious ...
I applied the basic principle of light. For an object to be seen we need three things: a light source, an object to reflect it, and an observer to pick it up.
This work is the result of more than forty years of researching and working with light and shadow.
Technically, these photographs are taken from total darkness. The model is painted light. I use flashlights of different sizes and colors as brushes, I apply the light directly on the model. It is not a job done with any computer program.
The works date from 2013 to 2022 and are the result of a lifetime.
