Majestic Flora Embraces Artist in Her Powerful Self-Portraits

Inspiration and the main object collide as one in self-portraits by Fares Micue. Posing in perfect harmony with vivid flora, embraced by its magnificence. Spanish self-taught fine art/conceptual photographer, Micue, started doing photography as a hobby in 2009 after discovering the site Flick. 6 years later, she came to the realization she could translate her thoughts, ideas, and perception of the reality perfectly through her photography. It was the day her art direction changed. Adding extra elements, locations, colors, props, feelings, and deeper stories behind her creations, gave her photos a completely different look. The goal for Micue is always “delivering images with a strong message on personal growth, reflection, self-worth, and overcoming obstacles.” Her trademark style includes ‘simple backgrounds, saturated colors, and conceptual content portraited with highly aesthetic charm”. “I want my work to be viewed as a whole story condensed in one frame,” the artist said. Interestingly, Micue loves working with natural light, even when she’s working indoors. After all is set and shot, she finishes her work in Photoshop to complete the vision that was in her mind all along.

“I am a highly positive person and this positivism often reflects in my work delivering images with a strong message on personal growth, reflection, self-worth, and overcoming obstacles.” – Fares Micue.

“My work is full of symbolism, every element in my compositions has a purpose.”

“It always starts with an idea in my head and the feeling I want to portray…”

“…Most times I create a sketch of the image I want to create together with as many details as I can get like colors, mood, location, clothing, props, etc… as well as a short story about the image.”

‘Micue’s work is characterized by simple backgrounds, saturated colors, and conceptual content portraited with highly aesthetic charm.’

Micue had found photography to be a perfect medium for her to share her ideas and her perception of reality.

Micue always tries to empower people through her art and wishes her work to be viewed as a whole story condensed in one frame.
