I don´t capture images, they do capture me.. – Angela Sairaf
Spanish Photographer Angela Sairaf shares with us her series The Secret Life of Tapuicacas, her mysterious figures who live all around the globe being photographed.
“Tapuicacas are closer than you think. Actually, they are everywhere, especially in artistic environments. Their life is top-secret and they never reveal their true identity. I am lucky enough that some of them agreed to be photographed by me, which is truly an honour. In this series, I have portrayed the Tapuicacas in different situations all over the world.” – Angela Sairaf
