    Andrea Torres Balaguer’s passion for photography remains deeply rooted in her preoccupation with the mystery and ambiguity the medium oftentimes provides. Looking to masters like Duane Michals, Sally Mann and Annie Leibovitz, Torres has developed a distinct quality to her works that alludes to a dark and moody aesthetic while pushing the boundaries of portrait photography beyond its traditional limitations.

  • “Photography deals exquisitely with appearances, but nothing is what it appears to be.” -Duane Michals

  • Working as a fashion photographer in Barcelona, Torres intersects this aesthetic with elements of couture in the series’ The Unknown and Hivernacle. The self portraits are photographed in natural light, and draped in provocative silks, lace, and velvets. Torres’ execution of the composition creates a painterly portrait that triggers all of the senses - so rich in texture and their brilliant, jewel-toned colors. The narrative is pushed one step further with the unique brushstroke that is applied across the subject’s face post-production, making each image slightly different from the others in its small edition. The viewer is left to create their own interpretation and decipher for themselves what is reality and what is fiction.
