project description

Anónimos

 

The little scenes and everyday stories that happen around us have always been beautiful to me. In that decisive moment in which the person does not know that he is being photographed is where I place the essence of my photography. I am interested in capturing the naturalness and authenticity of the environment, the dialogue of each person with herself and with the dynamics that surround her. Sometimes I look for stories, complex scenes that arise from the daily hustle and bustle, other times I focus on people and their feelings in an effort to bring out their problems and inner worlds through my images.

project presentation

This is the concept

"I have always loved the way my camera captures the city and its people. Beings of the environment. The here and now. For me the city is a universe full of mysteries and attractions. With its walls, which hold in perpetual confidence the nostalgia for good times and bad. That city dressed in new or old, silent or overcrowded constitutes a hotbed of inheritances that in the end end up defining our personal stories. I really enjoy placing people as a fundamental element of my composition, waiting for that “decisive moment” in which an expression, an action, a gesture or simply a look happens. Anónimos is a series that I have been working on since 2016. It is made up of several subseries in which I deal with very different topics: transportation, religion, childhood. But they all have the same common thread that are precisely these “anonymous” men, women, children, young people, old people who are ultimately responsible for keeping our cities alive, enriching them with their dreams, their stories, their laughter, their cries. Some of my characters are especially interesting: serene, taciturn, engrossed, or even in need of hope. With this series I intend to show them; give them a voice and us too because after all we are all anonymous in the eyes of others."
