As a photographer, Alejandro Maestre Gasteazi‘s expertise lies in the realm of lighting and digital post-production. These two skills are flexed to the utmost in the latest portrait series of his good friend Julián. Beautifully sculptural and built up like a motion picture, Alejandro focuses on the understanding of the body, leaving each frame as a simple vision of not-quite-dry concrete floating against a basic white backdrop.
“Julián is a good friend who I deeply respect; he is a multidisciplinary and complete artist. He is, at the same time, film director, sculptor, painter, photographer and writer. He suggested time ago the idea of doing a portrait of him that could describe his capacity of creating and his constant search to understand his body and spirit. All these made me think about his work and helped me to develop the idea of this work.
Therefore, with this photograph series I intend to show an artist fighting to get to know and shape himself and turn into a better human being.”
