Entry Description

An ironic reflection on appearances, sensuality, and the cultural prejudices in relation to the body and beauty. All these photographs were taken in studio, where we built complex sceneries in order to create the fantastic places I had in my head. Everything is real, everything is there.

About Photographer

My name is Gonzaga Manso. I’m a young photographer, director and director of photography. I'm passionate about images. About light. About ideas and emotion. I’m mainly focused on advertising and artistic work, being my personal projects a fundamental part of my creative development and my visual experimentation. I’ve got the pleasure to work for clients like Pepsi, Movistar, Sony and Smart, and with agencies like DDB, McCann-Erikcson, Contrapunto BBDO and TBWA. As a director of photography I’ve worked with prestigious Spanish directors such as Javier Fesser, Borja Cobeaga and Julio Medem. Being able to turn your passion into your profession is a great privilege. I'm thankful to all the people who support me and make it happen every day. Thanks.
