One of those friends

I've been recently asked if I don't miss the sea. And you know what? To be honest, I don't. 

Even though I was raised in Gran Canaria and have spent months of my life on the beach, I really don't feel that urge to swim in the sea or even have it in front of me. 

If you live on an island, the sea can be seen as way to connect with the rest of the world or as a wall that doesn't let you out. I have always seen it the second way. 

But even so, it's not that I hate it. I actually enjoy whenever I see it again. It's like meeting one of those friends who you haven't met in years but when you do, it seems as if nothing had change. You don‘t even have to say a word to make him or her understand how you are doing.

I was born in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Spain) in 1974. In 1992 I started to study photography in my home town. After some years I moved to Berlin to go on with my studies and get a wider view about photography. After working for many years in the design and advertising industry and having photography as a scape, in 2009 I decided to put more effort on my own projects. At the moment, I'm focussed in a personal search that's helping me to understand what I want to express, artistically speaking. Or is it the other way around?
