“Antique is a conceptual project about the distortion of beauty that we may see in ourselves when influenced by fashions and what surrounds us.
In our society, people usually give too much importance to the physical or body awareness. It is said to be the key to get success in life. This pressure often affects the perception we look at us, to the extent we might perceive ourselves in a worse manner than we really are.
This series is formed by black & white blurred portraits. The photographs mix street photography, fashion and surrealist art.”
From an early age, David Rodríguez was attracted to the art world, but his love for photography didn´t start until 2013— the year he bought his first reflex camera. Shortly afterwards, he began to train himself through several courses. He loves surreal photography and fashion photography. His main influences are Man Ray, Erwin Blumenfeld and above all Guy Bourdin.
