In a series of subtle colours and places we are all familiar with: home and its surroundings, photographer Laura Jimenez photographs a fresh face Bash Sanchez at Models 1.
In the beautiful late afternoon light, we see a natural and bare Bash. With strong jawbones defining his face, giving him a powerful appearance. A gaze with a hint of mystery, it invites our readers to let the mind wander or explore his environment. Bash plays with a mix of spontaneous and calm poses, delivering a poetic mood throughout the series.
There is a beauty in the simplicity in this intimate shoot between photographer and model. Laura commented, “We really connected from the first time we met, although we both were a bit coy.” As a bond is formed, and the variety of expressions provided by Bash, through her lens Laura successfully captured this charismatic boy in these alluring and beautiful photographs.
