“Picking up the pieces” & “A path that forks”. Photography by David Guillén

Malebody. Nude Photography / Fotografía de desnudo centrado en el cuerpo masculino.

Esta sesión tuvo lugar en la casa de Emilio, por lo que la intimidad y el carácter cercano debían quedar perfectamente reflejados.  Así que, para comenzar, nos desplazamos a una pequeña población a las afueras de Sevilla y nos centramos en observar las posibilidades del interior.

El espacio, un dormitorio, se presentaba casi totalmente libre de elementos, y dejaba entrever las posibilidades de un foco de luz dura, natural, proyectado a través de la única ventana de la habitación. 

Tal y como ocurrió con la serie “I keep your photograph beside my bed”, convertimos al modelo y la luz en protagonistas de la sesión. De alguna manera, son descartes de aquella sesión que con elementos interesantes, más centrado en el cuerpo, identificándolo con el paisaje, que en el carácter dramático de la anterior serie.

Las fotografías están tomadas con cámara Canon EOS 750D, y la postproducción, realizada a través de Adobe Photoshop, se centra en la implementación de la propia imagen a través de pequeños retoques de la luz y del color.

Do you think of her?
When you’re with me?
Repeat the memories you made together
Whose face do you see?
Do you wish I was a bit more like her?
Am I too loud?
I play the clown
To cover up all these doubts

 

Perfect heart
She’s flawless
She’s the other woman
Shining in her splendor
You were lost

 

Now she’s gone
And I’m picking up the pieces
I watch you cry
But you don’t see that I’m the one by your side
‘Cause she’s gone
In her shadow is it me you see?
‘Cause all that’s left is you and I
And I’m picking up the pieces she left behind

 

I found a photograph behind the TV
You look so happy are you missing the way it used to be?
And I have changed this room around more often lately
It’s clear that we
And these four walls
Still known as hers and yours

 

Perfect part
She’s flawless
She’s the other woman
Shining in her splendor
You were lost

 

Now she’s gone
And I’m picking up the pieces
I watch you cry
But you don’t see that I’m the one by your side
‘Cause she’s gone
In her shadow is it me you see?
‘Cause all that’s left is you and I
And I’m picking up the pieces she left behind

 

Are we liars in denial?
Are we smoke without the fire?
Tell me please is this worth it?
I deserve it

 

‘Cause she’s gone
And I’m picking up the pieces
I watch you cry
But you don’t see that I’m the one by your side
‘Cause she’s gone
In her shadow is it me you see?
‘Cause all that’s left is you and I
And I’m picking up the pieces
She left behind

 

Oh, I’m picking up the pieces
Of a broken heart
Who will save them?
Who will save them?
I’m picking up the pieces
Oh, I’m picking up the pieces
Somebody save me
Somebody save me
Oh, oh, oh, oh

OUT OF HERE – Urban Photography by David Guillén

Artistic Photography / Landscape Photography taken in Berlin / Fotografía Artística / Fotografía de paisaje realizada en Berlín.

Looking from outside into an open window one never sees as much as when one looks through a closed window.
There is nothing more profound, more mysterious, more pregnant, more insidious, more dazzling than a window lighted by a single candle.
What one can see out in the sunlight is always less interesting than what goes on behind a windowpane. 
In that black or luminous square life lives, life dreams, life suffers.

Across the ocean of roofs I can see a middle-aged woman, her face already lined, who is forever bending over something and who never goes out.
Out of her face, her dress, and her gestures, out of practically nothing at all, I have made up this woman’s story, or rather legend, and sometimes I tell it to myself and weep.

If it had been an old man I could have made up his just as well.

And I go to bed proud to have lived and to have suffered in some one besides myself.

Perhaps you will say “Are you sure that your story is the really one?”
But what does it matter what reality is outside myself, so long as it has helped me to live, to feel that I am, and what I am?

PUBLICIDAD: Por una mirada, un mundo

Advertising Photography / Fotografía Publicitaria

Photography by David Guillén

Ejercicio consistente en la aplicación de la poética visual y la abstracción a la fotografía publicitaria adaptada a un producto o marca comercial, en este caso a la empresa General Óptica, dedicada al cuidado de la salud visual.
Tras un estudio del producto, la competencia y el target, se llega a un planteamiento basado en figuras simples, tomando como referencias algunos trabajos de Rodchenko, Nikolás de Lekuona y Eli Craven, e incorporando como lema los versos del poeta Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer “Por una mirada, un mundo”.
El ejercicio debía mostrar la adecuación de las imágenes para diferentes formatos, como faldón publicitario, columna o cartelería.

Exercise focused on Visual Poetry and the application as Advertising Photography for a real label: General Óptica.
