In Camila Falquez’s photography series “Humanidad Aqui Arriba”, two female bodies with distinct skin colors synchronize in motion, forming beautiful images of harmony and unity. Portrayed with a poem by Spanish poet Leticia Sala, this is another striking personal project from the photographer, who is passionate about the human form and its movements.
Movement, motion, and emotion are three essential elements to every photographer, and particularly to Camila Falquez. Her connection with movement and the body subconsciously derives from personal experience: dance lessons in childhood rarely allowed individual expression due to the technical rules that ballet imposes. Photography as an art form emerged organically for Camila. A self-taught photographer who started a professional career as an assistant to street style photographer Scott Schuman has in recent years built an impressive list of fashion industry clients. Living intermittently between Barcelona and New York, she is always eager to discover unknown places, different cultures, and people’s relationship with their surroundings. “I’m not portraying how people move culturally. What I’m doing is moving these bodies and showing through my eyes how I see movement in their body,” she says.
