About the artwork

This documentary photograph was taken on 18 September 2011 during Madrid Fashion Week. It reflects a patient moment, the last moment for the models before heading out onto the catwalk surrounded by a crowd of specialised journalists, photographers, and influential personalities. It is an image that depicts the wings of fashion shows without artifice, showing what usually goes unseen under the spotlights. In Wigs, the young women, wearing blond wigs as sleek as their slender bodies, appear as impassive sphinxes, full of fear and human flaws. Fascinated by the photographic work of American Bruce Weber whose black-and-white photographs exalt male beauty, Pototo Diez aims to impress the spectator through subtle, stolen moments and, at the same time, defend these women who are often criticised and envied.
