Esta semana, el blog de Graphis de Nueva York, la editorial que publica los trabajos más significativos e influyentes en diseño, publicidad y fotografía del mundo desde 1944, enfoca su atención en los fotógrafos Ramon Vaquero, Howard Rosenberg y Ricardo de Vicq de Cumptich:
This week’s nude photography spotlight
Reproducimos parte del texto del artículo en Graphis:
Nude photography has a elegiac grace to it that few other subjects are capable of displaying. There’s a sense of noble vulnerability to the naked human form, one that is as fragile as it is bold. Furthermore, presenting it in monochromatic and/or subdued color schemes–as these photographers have done–forces the viewer to reconfigure their perceptions and expectations of the body. It is in this context that Ramon Vaquero, Howard Rosenberg, and Ricardo de Vicq de Cumptich showcase some of the very best that nude photography has to offer in this week’s showcase (…)
Equally capricious is Blue Nude (ABOVE, LEFT) from Ramon Vaquero who presents the body as if it is a marquee in a sea of light. The poised shape of the body, coupled with the contouring lighting that details the shape and outline of the body, presents the body as an immaculate design that is the focus of any and all. And yet, as Vaquero explains that “colors were important to achieve the laid-back sensation,” adding that “they should be soft and limited to a few blue tones” so as to achieve an unobtrusive visuality.
Agradecemos a Graphis la inclusión de un trabajo de Ramon Vaquero en su blog, tal y como habían hecho anteriormente:
