Artist Statement

As a self-portrait artist, I use the observation of my surroundings, personal experiences, and my own transformation to create beautiful, conceptual images. My work is the transformation of my ideas into images.

My images often feature simple backgrounds, saturated colors, and characteristic props like flowers, plants, origami, or balloons. I want my work to be viewed as a whole story condensed in one frame.

Fares Micue

Fares Micue is a Spanish, self-taught fine art/conceptual self-portrait photographer born in Lanzarote (Canary Islands) in 1987. She started photography back in 2009 as a hobby, but after 6 years into this hobby she realized that photography was the perfect medium to share her thoughts, ideas and perception of reality with others, as well as a great tool to combine with her other passion, which is writing, taking a different approach to the creative process of her images: putting extra attention into all the elements included in the final image, like location, colors, props, mood, and story, creating a final...
