ARTIST OF THE WEEK: MUTED METALLICSOctober 19, 2016
Spanish/Irish photographer Mauricio Corridan experiments with muted metallics. Playing with textures, lines and perspectives, he captures the contrasting landscapes of Berlin and Los Angeles. We caught up with him to find out a little more about his inspirations…
My idea was to work with a few graphic and minimalistic locations. I wanted cool and edgy poses which would be well integrated in the surroundings.
In LA I shot in a really cool and inspiring place, an abandoned motel which is completely white. It’s the perfect place to let you creativity run wild as you can shoot from every corner and use some of the objects which are just lying around. The UO outfits were all really interesting to create images with.
The second shoot was in Berlin, which is where I currently live, a city with so many hidden gems and a lot to offer. This is one of my favourite spots due to its textures, lines and concrete. I thought the outfits would really go well with this place. In this location you can really try out shooting from different perspectives and angles!
I find it hard to describe or talk about my photographic style/approach as I always love trying new things and I don’t really stay in one genre. I like shooting portraits, staged images, fashion, landscapes, etc. Still, I think there is something common in my work, in general I love clean and graphic spaces and when I stage images, I enjoy using objects that can add an extra layer to the story. ”
