It’s an undeniable fact that we’re lovers of analog photography. I don’t want to get all high and mighty about it, but there’s something about the grain, the imperfections and unforgivefullness of film that intrigues us. Spanish photographer Evita Weed (Eva González López) brings us just that: Perfect, imperfect mistery, presumably photographed in the Spanish Landscape.
“EvitaWeed”, also known as Eva González López (1986) was born in a small village in the Jaen provence in Andalusia, Spain. In this village she began experimenting with photography. In 2002 Evita moved to Granada (Spain) where she started a photography study. Here she found her own personal style and learned how to use photography as something deeper; a medium through which she can translate feelings and sensations perceived as light and turn those into tangible realities on paper.
In Evita Weed’s photography you will always find a touch of melancholy. She is a lover of analog photography because of the grain running through each and every shot, the subtle and soft tones, the small gradients and the tremendous use of light. Natural light is the queen of her collection.
Her style is very characteristic / recognizable which makes it easy to let go and plunge into the imaginary world of sublime landscapes, skies full of life and hidden feelings in the most remote corners.
“The big change came when I stopped looking from the outside in and started looking from the inside out” – Albert G. Alix
This quote from Albert G Alix is very identifiable for Evita’s work. It’s her view of the world around: A huge desert of asphalt which she tries to flee. Preserving her innocence in a society lacking it. A look at the city, this huge and lonely desert road, resistance to inevitable loss of innocence. There are thousands of moments in life, and some deserve to be enshrined.
Feelings and images and nothing more.
