Fabio Borquez, la mode académique
Borquez's intention is not to put women on display. He discovers his models during photo shoots and castings, or even out on the street. More than just mere objects in front of the camera, his models unveil their characters in their unrehearsed poses . The triumph of femininity coupled with a total confidence in the photographer is what makes these “victresses”, a term coined by the artist himself, seem at ease and passionate at the same time. He was travelling around the world working and capturing something more than women, he describes himself not as a photojournalist or womens photographer, his way of seeing the world does not fit into one drawer, the aim of it is for people who see the work to reflect or feel trapped by the stories that the pictures convey. His work was included in several books, his first international book called "Chicas" was published in 2008,it was followed by "Erotic wonderland" in 2011 and in 2013 will be published : "Naked soul"
Born in 1964 in Argentina, Fabio Borquez studied art, photography and architecture in Buenos Aires. Various scholarships took him to India, Columbia and Germany. He met his German wife in Miami Beach, where he told her after just ten minutes that he would marry her. She was the reason he said goodbye to his accustomed life in order to follow her to Germany, where he has been living since 2001 near Düsseldorf.
