Toni Ricart


Toni has a graphic visual signature, he creates a dialogue combining different hues of black, white and gray with the authority that his professional trajectory has given him. But I already knew that. Now I see the portrait photographer, the hunter of poses, the obsessive observer of hands and eyes; clues with which to unravel souls. According to Henri Matisse, there are two ways of expressing things: one is showing them brutally, the other is evoking them with art. These portraits are moments spent with the musicians, not moments of their music. Toni is more interested in evoking the inner moment of the subjects of his portraits, which will eventually turn into an artistic expression. The relationship with his musicians is through their silence and the dormant potential of their instrument, or just a part of it, aptly framed; it is as if the whole depended so much on an extended time that the photographer chose to inflame our imagination with the possibilities of music and not of the musical moment.
