Paper Faces by Héctor Sos Gargallo

The “Paper Faces” project was created with the intention of linking CreadorVol paper use, paper for the publishing industry as natural, alive and nearby, hence the metaphor and the relationship established between paper and face. From this idea and the need to show the qualities of paper on a four-color printing process is a series of distinctive structures made of paper that cover the faces of the different models and then photographed them.

Paper and color are the elements that give strength to the project and act as if it were preformatted articulates a photo shoot where the attitude is being sought by the model is similar to a traditional portrait session with the bust turns looking to the camera, classic profiles and three quarters while seeking a distinctly urban aesthetics, youthful and contemporary through natural light and direct, without dramatic effects the clarity of light unifies the various images to create a clean atmosphere and providing the different models of an air of naturalness.

The project was done while I was working for Rosa Lázaro Studio. Photographer was – Xabier Mendiola, year 2010 for our client Torras Papel. There is a strong inspiration from the contemporary art world. I remember that, at that time, I was very focused in the Carmen Calvo artworks, a very famous Spanish artist.

Well, I don’t consider myself as an artist. I’m a graphic designer and art director. I’m in love with my job. But I always try to be updated with the things that I like. And the things that I like aren’t directly related with graphic design. For me it’s very important watch a lot of contemporary art, photography, architecture and listen electronic music every time, those are my sources of inspiration. And of course, I try to do my best in all the projects I am involved.
