IT IS EASY TO BARE YOUR BODY. IT IS SIMPLY A MATTER OF TAKING OF YOUR CLOTHES. BARING THE SOUL IS A MORE COMPLEX ISSUE. TO REACH COMPLETE OPENNESS, YOU NEED TO DIVEST IDEAS AND MEMORIES. THE EMOTIONS AND SENSATIONS THAT YOU EXPERIENCED AND HAVE REMAINED IN YOUR BODY AND MIND. TO OPEN YOUR SOUL IS TO GIVE YOURSELF COMPLETELY. NOT AN EASY TASK AS EVEN IN THE MOST INTIMATE MOMENT WE STILL WEAR A MASK.
Carlos Martínez Guzmán has two passions in his life: graphic design and photography. Obviously Carlos has been seduced by visual arts. Graphic design he choose as his professional path through his life. Photography is his hobby that accompanies him. As a designer and brand developer Carlos has worked for various companies. As a photographer he has focussed on portraiture and fashion, two disciples that have become the source of inspiration for his personal style. A style that starts to manifest itself from the moment his lens captures his subject.
As a photographer of nudes Carlos Martínez has learned that for a model it is not always that obvious to reach the expected goal. Some strip down to nothing and pose. Others bare it all: body and soul. Once you are on that path it becomes inevitable. A process of which there is no turning back. According to Carlos it is like having been in a desert and craving for water. Once the liquid touches your lips, you instinctively can't stop drinking. And the more you absorb, the more you bare.
About The Naked Soul Carlos Martínez says the following: "The body has memories. Memories of pleasure and pain, and the thin line between them. Does the body ever forget? If so, what is it that it tries to forget? Memories of past experiences? Moments taken in skin? Caresses that hide intentions and silences bursting into a silent scream through the eyes? If the eyes are the windows of the soul, why should we close them to experiencing the ecstasy of pleasure? Is there a right time to manifest the intense desire or drown into an explosion of sensuality?"
The Naked Soul, featuring model Enrique Ruiz, is not about closing your eyes to not see. It is about closing your eyes to look inside. To open your soul and expose the sensitive nerves of your emotions and memories to the outside. The Naked Soul is about lowering the mask we always seem to wear. A mask that we are so used to that it has become a part of our personality. It is about the time of revelations. The naked body is no longer enough. It is time that the naked soul is presented. –BM-
