Elvira Carrasco

Cuenca 1990


Elvira Carrasco studied Art History at the University of Valencia and, upon completion, gets a scholarship to work at the Stair Sainty Gallery in London. It was during this stay in England that the artist decided to buy her first camera, something she had been wanting to have for years. As a game, she began to use it immortalizing scenes from London city, and little by little she experimented with different techniques, models, spaces..., until she decided to return to Spain with the sole objetive of being a creative photographer. Already in Spain, specifically in Valencia, she sets up a study in her living room, whic wil allow her to investigate herself and know her own limits. This is how ''Faces Project'' was born, as a result of perseverance and creativity, research and chance.
His project is a proposal for an artistic self-portrait in which the ''Body Art'' is developed, a term thet defines the use of the body itself as an artistic support or canvas.
