A reportage about love

28 APRIL 2017

This post is very special. I’m sharing authorship with my partner, Carles Puyol. We are really excited about sharing the full feature from Fashion&Arts that was published on April 16th last.

This is a little chat about what we both thought of the experience, each from our own perspective. Here goes.

Carles. As I said, I would never have done that photo shoot if it weren’t for you. I don’t find it easy. I’ve never liked standing in front of the camera, it’s not my habitat. I’ve never been too concerned about my image or aesthetics either. I focused on playing football and on doing what I felt without thinking about whether I looked good or not. I feel uncomfortable in front of the camera; I don’t know what to do. The team’s relaxed attitude, and you of course, Vanesa, made the experience easier for me.

Vanesa. Of course, one of the conditions for this shoot was that we could ensure that great care was taken over everything, because I know you, and I knew that if we found the right team that was enthusiastic about this publication, everything would go smoothly. I was delighted that Joana Bonet and Fashion&Arts let me get involved in the art direction. As you have seen, with the book for example, I love being involved in the creative side of projects.

C. I can vouch for that…I’ve seen you working and you are too much of a perfectionist. You never think anything is ever completely finished. You’ve told me about how small details make a difference, and I am beginning to understand more about photography and image as we work on projects together. I see similarities with football: small details change the result massively. “Success is in the details”. Although one thing is theory and another is practice… You have to relax in front of the camera but continue to control your corporeal expression. In this session, I was really lucky to have you guiding me all the time, telling me what I had to do.

V. As a model, and after so many years in the profession, I have shared countless shoots with colleagues, but I have never before done photos in such a meaningful manner. It was really comfortable because we were together, sharing a very intimate language that we are used to sharing, naturally. I think that is why the photos emanate something so beautiful, because it is real. I’m really happy with the result. Also,…there’s something else. I was really excited about people seeing a side to you that is very different to what they are used to seeing. I don’t know…more fashionable…an attractive guy…which is what you are. And I’m saying it objectively, eh?

C. Well, you’re a bit biased… But it’s true that lately people have been saying: “What has Vanesa done to you? You look much better…”. You’ve been changing little things, and in this case bigger things. To begin with, you’ve refreshed my whole wardrobe!

V. I’ve received lots of comments about how this feature has let people find out a little bit more about us. I hope that it isn’t misunderstood as an overexposure of our intimacy. For us it was an artistic adventure. It was really nice to participate in such a meticulous aesthetic fashion project. A feature about love.

Dear Vanesa,
These photos and the interview are incredibly beautiful, personal, intimate and brave. Congratulations to you and Carles both for being so sharing with your relationship. It really is inspiring. You both seem very down to earth despite paparazzi following you and media coverage . That’s very rare in this day and age.

Thank you for showing us how love truly has changed you both, as couple and as individuals.
