Statement 


Diego Ballestrasse researches the imaginary potential that contains the photographic medium, his work raises a reflection around the multiple temporalities that each image carries, as well as the mechanisms which activate memory and the inherent subjectivity in our perception of images.


Modelos

2009



Photo reportage realized within the setting of the 080 Barcelona Fashion Festival. The photographies were taken on the backstage and they attempt to re-site the auratic ideal of the supermodel. They capture the models with natural expressions in times of rest or transition, or when posing for other photographers. It deals with portraits in which the glamorous reference proper of the idyllic universe of the fashion industry is left out of context.
