Desretratos by Lucas Simões


For his series ‘desretratos’ Lucas Simões invited close friends over to tell him a secret while he took their portrait. However, his intention was not to hear their secret, but to capture the expressions of each one at the moment they revealed their secret.

He also asked each one to choose a song for him to listen to in his ear phones while he photographed them. And, after the photo session, he asked each one if the secret had a color, and these are the colors the portraits carry. From this photo shooting session he chose 10 different portraits to cut and overlap, which causes an amazing look and lets one question, which secrets these portraits would reveal.
