“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
