Ferran Rausell is a 31-year-old artist who started capturing anything that attracts his attention some time around 1995. He combines his job as a photographer with the management of a tattoo studio and deejaying.
How did the idea for the series come about?
We were looking for casual and ordinary pictures; that’s why we chose my house/studio as a location, so that we could reflect the everyday life.
Can we photograph the female body differently in a more powerful way?
I believe that the female body is already so powerful by itself. The only thing we do as photographers is to reflect this with different types of lighting and poses, but it’s really the femininity that has all the potential to do all of this.
What inspires you?
The everyday life, night time, my skateboard, and all the creative and amazing people that surround me.
How would you define beauty?
Even though beauty seems something very concrete and tangible, I believe it’s just pure metaphysics, which makes it indefinable. It can be anywhere. What may seem beautiful to me, probably horrifies my mother.
Film or digital?
Forever and ever, film!
What makes you happy and what’s next for you?
To make a living out of what you love is the best thing that can happen to someone. I still have to finish a project on prostitution that I started a few years ago.
