Santiago Perez explores the concept of relationships and the romantic gaze. False eyelashes point upwards from a dewy plane of skin. Bent wire frames the soft features of a face. Pupils poke out from torn paper.
Sheaths of material swathe the figures with intimate details. Flowers protrude from thin veils and facial features are dipped in paint. Perez transforms the familiarity of facial and physical features into surreal scenarios – dreamlike versions of the self.
Pale pinks match with deep reds, turquoise and cream – clothing and backgrounds graded like sweet cinematic palettes. Perez’s editorial works have appeared in Vogue Italia, Vogue Arabia, METAL Magazineand others.
