DIVE

David Rodríguez is a Spanish photographer. “Dive” (2019) is formed by a series of photographs of minimalist character, in which the simple compositions stand out. The swimmers show sensual and elegant poses under a backdrop of surrealist air. Water has always been a source of inspiration for David Rodríguez.

The Canary Islands based artist describes the new project as ¨inspired by the work of Horst P. Horst¨ and represents on a summer day in which we can see two bathers enjoying the sun near the sea.


I like to photograph people, I feel very comfortable doing portraits, but I always try to go a little further. That is the reason why I try to look for risky compositions, with a touch of surrealism. Works like those of Man Ray, Erwin Blumenfeld or Guy Bourdin inspire me immensely.

Each person inspires me a different sensation, so before I do the shooting, I imagine how I would like to portray him or her. Then, I create a concept and imagine a story. I do not like to get attached to reality. Instead, I like to transform it, challenging the model with unusual situations. I play with the model, making each session a culture encounter, but also an enriching and surprising experience for both of us.
