MAURICIO D LA ROCHA G
Hi, welcome to my site, I'm glad you are here.
Portraits have always been my way to explore and express myself through photographs.
In "Intimate Stories" I found a personal project that speaks to me in a very real and raw way. It is an experience that offers gifts to both, subject and photographer. And after many years, I feel I’ve found my own voice and style.
The vulnerability and courage of the women I’m photographing, the conversations, and the trust given to me never stops to amaze me. Having a person pointing a camera at you is intrusive and intimidating enough, but seeing the subject embrace the experience and witness how they build instant confidence and feel empowered is the most rewarding part of my job.
I've been photographing random people in their most personal spaces since 2010. First, with my "Camera Obscura Project" (2010-14), then with the "Night Ghost Stories" (2013-15) and finally with my "Double Exposures" & "Composite Project" (2016). My work has been exhibited all over Australia in different art galleries. I honestly feel privileged to capture images so intimate, beautiful and powerful, that it can bring joy and confidence to women.
I hope you enjoy my work. If you are curious and want to experience a photoshoot like this, please don't hesitate to contact me. I am here to help you on the journey to falling in love with yourself, and probably drop a few jaws in the process.
