L’OCÉANIDE – LUIS COTA {EXCLUSIVE EDITORIAL}

Photographer and Visual artist, Louis F. Cota submitted to us this project. entitled: “L’Océanide” and this is the inspiration behind this series on his own words.

A character reflected in three beautiful women, pretending to be mirages of the delusions of obsession with oneself in surreal landscapes, which come to be linked to create an alternative reality or even a lucid dream, reaching the point of a vicious interaction, losing the balance between reality and one’s identity.

Inspired by two paintings, one of them the story behind Narcissus (Italian: Narciso) told that he was a handsome youth who falls in love with his own reflection. Unable to tear himself away, he dies of his passion. It was painted by the Italian Baroque master Caravaggio circa 1597–1599. The other painting that inspired the title of the project was the concept of Les Oceanides Les Naiades de la mer by Gustave Doré, 1860s. The Oceanids, are water nymphs, they were patroness of a particular spring, river, sea, lake, pond, pasture, flower, breeze or cloud.

Also we focused on the aesthetic that was reflected in the beauty, clothes, the unique combination of landscapes of the desert, mountains and ocean and the beautiful colors with a natural light of the sunset. Creating a photography and perspective of minimalism and surrealism. The project was made on July, 2018. In “Piedras Pintas” beach, San Carlos Nuevo Guaymas, Sonora, Mexico.

Project on Kodak Portra 400 120mm & 35mm.
