Mermaids. Fascinating creatures.
Mermaids’ habitats are water shores. They spend many hours a day interacting, in some way or another, with water. After a few swims, they usually enjoy sitting next to the water and refresh themselves. They spend time absent-mindedly playing with rims and softly splashing the surface, while other mermaids swim around.
They sometimes lay down and sunbathe.
Mermaids are really difficult to portrait. They usually refuse to pose. They actually hide, escape, or politely excuse themselves as soon as a camera is withdrawn from a bag.
I was recently very lucky, and had the chance to take a few shots before I got fired with the phrase “Papa…! Sempre ens estàs fent fotos!! Que pesat!!! ” (catalan-to-english google translate, if not obvious enough).
My short Film DeChromaMe was showcased at Loop Film Fest 2011, at Fundación Francisco Godia (Barcelona).
It is a visual experiment on color shifts producing contraction or expansion of space (a side-efect of Wassily Kandinsky’s color theory, developed in his “Concerning the Spiritual in Art”)
While in New York City, I had the chance to shoot a short film.
It describes the crazyness of Times Square, as compared to the order-within-chaos of its sorroundings.
