It was one of those typical summer days in Barcelona, with the haze and pollution that blurs the city’s skyline. Attending the diving competition in Montjuic was a dream we had for a long time with a friend. We went that day and I took souvenir photos without any intention … When I got home and edited the photos I realized that there was something else there, it was precisely the imperfect moments that caught my attention. the mistake, the suspension, the weightlessness, even a touch of humor … I decided to return a second day, to complete the series. this time with all the intention I was looking for these moments during the warm-ups, I knew that the perfect photo of the jump with the Sagrada Familia behind it would already be held by all the press photographers. I was more interested in this sensation of falling suspended in the air; far from looking for speed, looking for lightness the imperfection, the delicacy, that day of calima helped to create this sensation of lightness as if the jumpers were floating on a thick layer of air.
Often the ethics of the image is raised within the limits of social values, questioning the right of photography to seize what is marginal. There is, however, another level of exclusion, where the grotesque aspect is not defined by defect, but by excess. This exaggeration is shown in Estupendas, women who compete in a race towards the most biting beauty; are exhibited at weddings and gatherings, including fur coats, pearl necklaces and Chanel Shanghai Rouge no78 lipstick. His particular universe of exaggeration surprises one who, from the other side of the frontier of this grotesque luxury, senses an almost ridiculous clash between a force that wants to manifest and a form that is unable to contain it.
