Javier Tles is a photographer, based in Barcelona. The images above are from a project called Noumeno in which Javier depicts elderly gentlemen. I was drawn to the texture of these images and the muted colour pallet, both of which give the images a cold and somber feel.
His website is split into two sections ‘for me’ – featuring self initiated projects, and ‘for them’ – featuring commercial projects for the likes of Nike and Renault. Looking at both sections of the website, it is clear to see that Javier’s ‘for me’ projects ultimately turn into commercial work, ‘for them’. A good way of working if you ask me, no doubt we’ll see a reincarnation of the above project for a big client before too long.
