A surreal and visionary world emerges from the camera of Inma Vivas, a young Spanish photographer. Every real element is juxtaposed with something improbable: a young woman, undressed and free of her clothes, enjoys the nature that surrounds her, but a mask hides her face; a figure behind curtains seems trapped by them, or the icy water of a river seems to swallow a girl who does not resist.
Everything is calm and spectral. Inma Vivas’s images invite us to reflect on ourselves, to question our deepest fears, spurring us to face them.
But photography is not only a way for Inma to get to know ourselves better, it is also the means she uses to discover herself and put herself to the test.
Especially during the last year, the Spanish photographer has started to explore the world of self-portraits. So, while the creation of the images has been a kind of therapy, a cure for solitude for Inma, their enjoyment is a discovery for the viewer.
“I hope that the viewer can identify with my work in some way and, if not, maybe they can understand the strangeness or discomfort of being lost in a moment of their lives.”
