Memories: "A series composed of several black and white photographs. In these photographs, the memories of a summer love are shown. Each of the photos represents a different past moment in time. These photos are full of symbols. The protagonists of the story look blurred, representing the memories that with the passing of time are fading. Neat parts symbolize the pain that remains after the separation."
David Rodríguez is a 39 year-old, Spain-based photographer. From an early age, he had always been attracted to the art world, though his love for photography didn´t begin until 2013 -- the year he bought his first reflex camera. He then began to explore his attraction to art, training himself through several courses and also through self-teaching.
"I like to photograph people, I feel very comfortable doing portraits, but I always try to go a little further. That is the reason why I try to look for risky compositions, with a touch of surrealism. Works like those of Man Ray, Erwin Blumenfeld or Guy Bourdin inspire me immensely.
Each person inspires me with a different sensation, so before I do the shooting, I imagine how I would like to portray him or her. Then, I create a concept and imagine a story. I do not like to get attached to reality. Instead, I like to transform it, challenging the model with unusual situations. I play with the model, making each session a culture encounter, but also an enriching and surprising experience for both of us. The use of the photography techniques I use, whether high speed, long exposure or others, is determined by the conceptual preconception I had in mind."
