Erotica // Wednesday, 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.
