MAKING OF: https://vimeo.com/143789683 EXHIBITIONS: Series exhibited in its entirety in the exhibition Artificio, retrospective of Paco Peregrín curated by Rafael Doctor Roncero at the Andalusian Center of Photography. Almería, 2018. Catalog. LOT ESSAY: Photo that belongs to a polyptych composed of 10 photographic works of different sizes, as a cosmology, where different periods and dimensions of the life cycle are captured in a symbolic way. The series "Ephemeral" deals with the unknown and the imperfect beauty. Focusing on the varied and interconnected artistic gazes of an androgynous female model, these images evoke the four ages of human beings (passing through aspects such as birth, breastfeeding, adolescent rebellion, maturity, aging and death). Concepts such as existence, destruction, life and death are treated symbolically in this project, thus proposing a reflection on loneliness and the transience of life. This project, which combines 3D computer graphics with digital photography, delves into the unknown origin and end of the human being and the fragile imperfect beauty as a metaphor for the ephemeral nature of beauty and life. Makeup, a symbol of consumerism, also functions as a mask, leaving aside conventionalisms and the traditional representation of the portrait, reflecting on the idea of identity and constituting a proposal of makeup as a contemporary mask that camouflages and protects us and also helps us to build a superego. With dramatic and creative aesthetics, Efímera is a reflection on the passage of time, but at the same time a powerful ode to diversity and freedom.

https://linktr.ee/PacoPeregrin Paco Peregrín was born in Almeria, Spain. He resides in Madrid and he works worldwide. He has won many grants and prizes including a Gold Lux (National Professional Photography Awards in Spain). He has been awarded at relevant international film festivals such as the Chicago Fashion Film Festival, the London Fashion Film Festival, the International Fashion Film Festival Brussels and the Global Short Film Awards Festival in Cannes. His work is part of important art collections and it has appeared in numerous books such as Otherworldly (Gestalten) or New Fashion Photography (Prestel). Paco Peregrín has also photographed and art-directed high-profile projects for global household names like Dior, Chanel, Saint Laurent, L’Oréal Paris, Adidas, Nike, Lee, Levi’S, Diesel, Vögele Shoes, Max Shoes, Gant, Mazda, Toyota, Carlsberg, La Rinascente, Redken, Marie Dalgar, Shiseido, Lancôme, etc. Paco has published his photographs in major magazines such as Vogue (IT, DE, ES), Harper’s Bazaar (US, ES, VN), L’Officiel, Vanity Fair, VMAN, ELLE, Grazia, Tatler, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Amica, Dsection, Fucking Young!, Vision, Zink!, Neo2, Tendencias, Yo Dona, Vanidad, Schön!, Noi.se, Allure, Edelweiss, NYLON, etc. Paco’s style has earned him credibility as one of the most exciting and talented photographers working in advertising, beauty, art and fashion today with major personality. His unmistakable signature belies his background in design, communication, theatre and painting. His photography carries a perfect blend of sensuality with avant garde. Fusing hyper-real futurism with high-end beauty images, his work is defined by a marked character of hybridization of styles where come together the latest fashion trends and the most personal conceptual reflections, always providing to his images with a sensual, elegant and mysterious, even perturbing character, trying to interrelate the point of view of the traditional art spectator with the most generic public of the mass-media. Paco’s juxtapositions shows a mastery of the fine line between commercial success and art.
