I produced these images long time ago, years.
The other day I was putting my stuff in order and I saw them again. I decided to compose a little abstract tale with a bunch of them and send them to Maria Zaragoza, a good friend and a great writer (we are expecting the release of a movie from a script of hers anytime: “Realidades de Humo“.) So she could write an invented tale based on the images. I thought it was a good idea because she’s skillful with the pen and great with her imagination. But even better, because she herself is pictured in these images. Also shown in the photographs is our friend Guillermo Mora (a great Spanish artist) and Juliette Exkore (a delightful make-up artist based in London). Thanks to all of you for that crazy night! We where there that night to take some nude portraits but it ended up being impossible.It was really cold and dark, and the equipment was not very good. In any case it was fun and we created these images among others. So in this case, as in the movie “Lost in La Mancha”, the making-of of a failed attempt of creation is the subject of the creation itself. I hope you enjoy the illustrated story.
