Rafael Mesa is a Valencia, Venezuela – based photographer who dedicates most of his time to capture the beauty of female shapes. Whilst describing his works as “retro avant-garde“, Rafael’s portfolio is an exploration of natural light and beauty. He uses a variety of formats: digital, 35mm film and instant film and most of his images are soft shoots serving as daydreaming. We interviewed Rafael here.
I look for authentic, honest images and above all, presented in a free and creative way. Natural light and similar textures are my favorite options when doing my work. (Source)
Words like real, honest, feminine, and natural are the most I hear when someone describes my work. Keeping things simple and straightforward is a must for me, it counts too. My primary influences are indie movies, old French films, music. A source of inspiration comes too by working with models with odd and special beauty. (Source)
