Luna Trista : Inner life
My artistic research comes from an ideal of beauty, leading me to discover unknown people with a strong inner life. Entering the other’s life, trying to understand them in their entirety brings me to study myself. The characters that affect me have something of myself, I can notice it in their looks, in the way they ask for a second before the shooting.
I mainly use black and white photography arising from my obsession with the past, from wich also comes my passion for decadence, the result of lived experiences. I rather picture women in their intimacy, everyday life and despair. More than once, it happened to me to photograph desperate characters.
Silence, dark colours, sex, imperfection in general and women form my inexhaustible source of inspiration.
“I don’t search perfection but the untiring conquest of their inner monsters. The obscurity, at the same time, is the beauty that seduces” Luna Tristá.
