'After all, the understanding and the enjoyment of these series by David Trullo do not require the trappings of this operating system, as they are based on and project from the realm of the rawest poetry: the one that comes from the street. It is not a coincidence that the saints who triumph and suffer in these photographic niches are so close to our contemporary ragazzi di vita: young workers, security guards, bricklayers, waiters and so on, placed next to bodybuilders reflected in bathroom mirrors, some uptown girl, some ground-down girl… visibly emanating from the illustrations of saints, urban tribes and heavy-metal bands. This is what life is like.'

José Marín-Medina
