Sexual provocations of Berlin at night in the works of Maxim BallesterosPictolic
Categories: Photo project |
The series titled "Love Me — I'm Trying" by Maxime Ballesteros is a wild mixture of not only photos from everyday life and staged shots, but also a mixture of genres, from standard urban and cultural landscapes to striking still lifes.
Ballesteros carefully illustrates the nightlife of Berlin, which successfully intersperses scenes from other cities. All this is complemented and contrasts with more "heavy" subjects, which often do not come out from other artists.
Ballesteros has an amazing ability to capture and transmit key elements that awaken nostalgic feelings.
Photos from this series can remind you, somewhere in the depths of your subconscious, about your personal picture, smell, taste, action or person.
"Love me — I'm trying" radiates the fleur of old-school porn films, with a slight saturation of color and the absence of any obvious plot.
Ballesteros ' works can best be described as the quintessence of artistic photography of real life, in which, if desired, many more subtle aspects can be considered.
