O. Gustavo Plascencia Retrato Imperfecto, 2011 Gelatin Silver Print www.ogplascencia.com plascencia00@gmail.com

Retrato Imperfecto is part of the Promesas Rotas series. This image explores ideas of desire, longing and guilt. Retrato Imperfecto shows the object of desire in a matter of fact fashion and not in a sexualized way. The title is meant to state the technical imperfections of the print as well as the human imperfections of both the subject/object of desire and my own.
