David Gomez Monsalve's Wicked Beauties

April 03, 2013


David Gomez Monsalve's photos  are both haunting and sensual. With velvety monochromatic textures, Monsalve captures moments of high drama and dark beauty. His thin, dark-lipped models evoke themes of sorcery and witchcraft, yet he adds themes of marriage and religion into the mix, creating images that are both thought-provoking and lovely. These photos feel as if from a different realm and time, somewhere laced with dark magic and a wicked kind of sexiness.
