Sergio de Luz
Madrid (Spain), 1981
In his captivating photographic journey, Sergio de Luz forges an intimate connection with the ebb and flow, where each creation is guided by the subtle melody of the drift. He seamlessly merges the essence of light with his creative process, a journey that began with self-taught and playful exploration, using a salvaged camera to lay the foundational stones of his current photographic understanding.
While initially drawn to portraiture, a serendipitous twist of fate led him into the enchanting realm of fashion photography. Here, light metamorphosed into his primary tool of expression, especially in the context of capturing the intricacies of the female form. Employing a unique ‘dissection’ approach, he accentuates specific facets, yet the true brilliance of his work lies in treating the body as a silhouette before plunging into its details. This technique serves as a self-imposed ‘censorship,’ delicately balancing artistic expression with profound respect for the model’s privacy. Throughout, Sergio upholds the dignity of his subjects, cultivating a profound admiration for beauty with every capture.
Emerging from a background steeped in black and white photography with a focus on contrast, Sergio embarks on the challenge of presenting beauty in an unconventional manner, unshackled by normative constraints. This conscious shift is a testament to his evolution, a seamless blend of years of fashion experience, where he explores new creative territories with reverence, maintaining an unwavering admiration for beauty.
