GUAPO FEATURE: HIEROPHANT

PHOTOGRAPHED BY MIKEL MARTON



Her sovereign Sunset's secret lover: Acolyte to her violent red desire. Last weekend, I photographed the eighteen-year old model, as my HIEROPHANT for the most recent spread featured in Ignacio Lozano's GUAPO magazine.

The duty of the HIEROPHANT is to draw the divine down to the physical Earth. He performs the rite of eventide, shaping the intangible, inconceivable beauty of the Universe into warm flesh in the palm of his hand. His body is the altar on which the Spirit and the Kingdom commune. Much like the Artist, whose duty is to stay pious to his vision, embodying an axis between his/her dreams and reality.

Beautiful! He reminds me of the Virgin Mary in one shot and a dejected Brutus in the next.
