Cansado

Photographic Nude Body Introspection inspired by Oliverio Girondo’s poem: “Cansado”. It connects with despair and sadness through my own body expression. I like to use my body to express emotions and feelings. I got inspired by literature and poetry, especially dark and sad poetry or poems.

This specific poem talks about a man who is tired of living with himself and his own body. A despair metaphor but also a beautiful song about his own deepest and darkest feelings.

I got connected with the poem and I tried to use my own body to express similar feelings and emotions about myself.



I like to use my body to express emotions and feelings. I got inspired by literature and poetry, especially dark and sad poetry or poems. I use high contrast images of my body, not so polished or edition soften. I try to use strong expressions showing a despair sentiment.
I also love blue, gray and monochrome tones that express melancholy and sadness.
