Javier B (@recinosbra)
With a Mapplethorpe-esque attention to light and the human form, Javier Bracamonte approached his subjects with curiosity and assurance. Through his exploration of movement, color, and the contemporary lives of his friends and loved ones, Javi tells stories of emotion, modernity and sentiment through a camera lens. Each photo is a biography—each subject an intimate conversation.
I began writing songs at 15yrs of age while learning to play the guitar. I had been writing poetry and telling short stories as long as I can remember and the guitar was the catalyst to bring these creative expressions together.
I utilize organic sensory skills and interpret this gathered information into lyrics, melody/tune formulating a short story in song.
Writing techniques are based around accelerated learning; encapsulating brainstorming, meditation, movement and modern information gathering technologies.
