Argentinean photographer Santiago Carrera has been photographing women for many years. His new series, Absences III, contradicts the basic definition of the word portrait. Carrera thoroughly planned these scenes: from hiring a professional hairdresser, directing the hand postures, to searching or even creating his own backgrounds.
His faceless women eliminate any personalization of facial features, or the search for expression through ‘the windows of the soul’. Is there something that we shouldn’t see? The combination between perfect composition, flawless beauty and haunting characters, make these photographs charmingly disturbing.
