    The digital half: Digital sabatiers
  • My bachelor's degree project is an exploration and experimentation around the photographic act, the genesis itself of the photographic image. Alternating from an analogical, a digital and a mixed approach to it.
    I've used my own and my step bro's bodies as a landscape, a map about the way how society defines and build our sense of what means to be a man, to be hetero, to interact with others being members of a gender and a role.

    There's a lot of influences behind these series of talbotypes: Georges Bataille, Rosalind Krauss, Joan Foncuberta and Walter Benjamin, Nan Goldin, Raoul Ubac, Man  Ray, Tor Dahlin, Ivo Sedlacek and Carsten Witte among many others.

    The final pieces of the work are a box set for the talbotypes made over different papers (parchment, durex, fabriano, among others), an e-book for some of the digital images, a website and hopefully a printed book (let's see, economics are working against it right now).

    I have to give special thanks to my director Omaira Abadia, my step bro John for be the other model, my step bro Jef for be my anchor in the middle of a horrible depressive episode and a lot of friends and family.

  • You can take a look of the e-book version in my Isuu account. I'm really proud of the whole project.
  • Still working on the idea of a printed version of the digital images, the problem right now is money, let's see what happens in the days to come. The printed version is ready for print, just need some extra cash. In any case this will be the cover and back cover of that version, which will include images not included in the e-book version):

  • Please take a look to the website and will be really kind to have some feedback: critics are more than welcomed, is a vital part of my process as a photographer and designer.
