Temperance – Fine Art Photograph
Format: 50cms x 50 cms
This photograph is from the series of deadly sins and virtues form Mariano Gutierrez Alarcon’s book Summa I
Dilligence is a virtue generally protrayed as a dolphin, In the virtues cases the colour chosen for each representation is the complementary color of the counter-parted sin (in this case indigo normally used to represent Sloth)
Is a fine-art photography book, which portrays the seven deadly sins and the opposite virtues.
“Summa I” may look beautiful but its primary intention is to seduce the reader into making an interpretation.
This seduction is established thanks to the interaction between pictures, design, make-up and the biblical quotes in an ancient Greek.
