Fernanda Fuentes

Fernanda is a singer songwriter, originally hailing from Monterrey in Mexico but now residing in London. She got in touch with me after seeing the Gumtree ad and my blog and asked if I could take some photos to promote her work.

She sent me a couple of demos, and I loved them instantly. Her sound is soulful, minimal, dark yet vulnerable, and if it isn't too much of a cliche, I thought that it would be great to capture some moody images in an urban context so we met up in Shoreditch on a Saturday lunchtime for a shoot.

We found some great backdrops including one alley full of graffitti, which was perfect; as well as a carpark full of old shipping containers and had a fun afternoon. As you can see from the pictures, she's a natural in front of the camera and was a pleasure to photograph. I'm sure you'll be hearing from her again soon.
