David Rodríguez was born and raised on the island of La Palma. To many people, this may sound exotic, but to him, it has always been "normal." Although he admits that living surrounded by water can be unique, determines how to think, act, and create.
After studying for a degree in Psychology at the University of La Laguna (Tenerife), he went to Valencia where he lived and worked for 10 years. It was there that he discovered the world of photography. Although he had always been attracted to the art world in general, it was not until 2013 when he began to train in this artistic discipline.
Meticulous to the point of exhaustion, David Rodríguez does not like improvisation or leaving anything to chance. “I plan each of my sessions thoroughly, down to the last detail. I start my creative process from an idea, which can be a concept, the stanza of a song, the sequence of a movie or a photograph that I have seen. This initial idea matures until it takes shape ”.
He loves surreal and fashion photography. His main influences are Guy Bourdin, Wille Christie, Man Ray and Joe Gaffney. One day he discovered a photo of Guy Bourdin that fascinated him enormously. In the picture, there was a girl under the water with her eyes and mouth open. David was enthralled with this image instantly and used it as inspiration for his first works.
Currently, he combines his work as a psychologist with photography.
It is a photographic series in which we can see small aesthetic diversions, winks of great sensuality, with a not at all demure vision of the feminine world. The images speak of a playful, fun, spontaneous, smart and independent woman but without falling into vulgarity. Rodriguez creates a sophisticated and powerful woman.
David Rodríguez looks for an idealized woman creating a stereotype of a strong, dominant and extremely feminine and sexual woman.
The women who star in his stories adopt unusual postures. He portrays them as a symbol of erotic provocation and sexual liberation. With some elaborate compositions and an inexplicably clean and organized mess.
The Hotel Hacienda de Abajo is the result of the careful rehabilitation of an old sugar estate from the 17th century and the first hotel built there, whose uniqueness has been officially recognized through its classification as the first emblematic hotel in the Canary Islands.
