The Bratislava International Portfolio Review 2013

I was some days ago in Bratislava to participate in the International Portfolio Review that that takes place within the The Month of Photography Festival.

The event is organized by the Central European House of Photography in Bratislava and it's a great occasion to meet photography professionals, magazine editors, museum curators, gallery owners, representatives of photography agencies, collectors and publishers from all around the world. 

I'm so glad that I went. I got so much good feedback from the reviewers! Most of them really liked the project that I showed them, "Fear of air" and who knows, there're might be some chances of having the series exhibited in some cool spots in Central Europe in the coming months. :) But it's soon to confirm that...

In any case, it was very motivating seeing how much interest specialists have shown for my work and especially seeing that my proposal was chosen among the 15 best pieces of work and that it was considered for the final prize! A shame I didn't get... 

Special thanks to Patrick Keough, one of the reviewers and author of the pictures that accompany this post.

Here a compilation with the finalist projects. Mine is at the end. :)

Berlin, Germany

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?
