This week we chat with photographer Fares Micue about her striking self-portraits that tell interesting stories about self-growth and mental health.
This week on Top Artist Podcast we chat with photographer Fares Micue about her striking self-portraits that tell interesting stories about self-growth and mental health. Using imagery of flowers, origami, and other delicate props, Micue transforms self-portraits into beautiful narratives about life. Her work is accompanied by thoughtful prose that brings new meaning to each piece.

Fares Micue is a Spanish self-taught fine art/conceptual self-portrait photographer born in Lanzarote (Canary Islands).
She started photography back in 2009 as a hobby with the hope of getting some nice pictures to share on her profile and without putting much thought into the photography process, but after 6 years into this hobby she realized that photography was the perfect medium to share her thoughts, ideas and perception of the reality with others as well as a great tool to combine her other passion that is writing and from that moment on she took a different approach to the creative process of her images, putting extra attention in all the elements to include in the final image like location, colors, props, mood, story, and meaning, creating a final image both rich aesthetically and in meaning.
