PARTIENDO DE OBJETOS Y VIVENCIAS COTIDIANAS, LA OBRA DE BAYONA REFLEXIO- NA SOBRE LAS RELACIONES HUMANO-AMOROSAS Y LA IDENTIDAD DEL SUJETO. Starting from objects and everyday life, Bayona's work reflects on the human-loving relationships and the identity of the subject. su formación como estudiante de historia del arte. Den- tro de su estética, la imagen casi cinematográfica que lo- gra se caracteriza por una puesta en escena, donde los decorados y los elementos que la componen son tan im- portantes como los personajes que desarrollan la acción. La fluidez y el movimiento de cada fotografía le permiten contar historias completas, divididas en series de títulos como «Circus Christi», «Once upon a time», «Long, long time ago…», y «What never was». En cada una de sus exposiciones, exhibidas en su sitio web, hay una introducción a modo de prólogo explicati- vo para dar paso al mundo mágico, extraño y simbólica- mente cargado de sus fotografías.

Bayona always gets the result he wants. His images are recognizable for the environments he constructs, the composi- tion, the lighting or the reminiscence of his art history training. His aesthetic depicts a nearly cinematographic image characterized by a stage where the decoration and components are just as important as the acting characters. The flow and movement of each photograph tell complete three-piece stories, like “Circus Christi”, “Once Upon a Time” and “What Never Was”. Each of his exhibits, broadcasted from his website, has a sort of explicative prologue that introduces us to the magical, strange and loaded with symbolism world in his photographs. Although his technique is not the cleanest, his signature is easily distinguishable in the language of his work, a look into his existence: his worries and deep interests. 67
