The exhibition Talent Latent opened in Tarragona including my series Cotidiana

The exhibition Talent Latent opened in Tarragona the 5th of november, as one of the highlights of the III Festival Internacional de Fotografía SCAN.

The exhibition shows the work of 13 emergent european artists selected by the curator Jesús Micó, who reviewed the work of hundreds authors before making his final selection. A selection that tries to show the main stylistic trends and themes found in the contemporary european photography.

I´m just so proud of being part of this group. It´s the first time I see my series Cotidiana as a whole (it had only been exhibited partially before). The set is simply outstanding and the venue is wonderful too. It´s located at the Mercado Central, in the very heart of Tarragona. 

The quality of the other artists work is also very highToni Amengual (Spain), Rosa Basurto (Spain), Marc Beckmann (Germany), Cécile Décorniquet (France), Lucía Herrero (Spain), Anastasia Khoroshilova (Russia), Sabine Koe (Austria), Rafael Lafuente (Spain), Juan Carlos Martínez (Spain), Danaé Panchaud (Switzerland), Oliver Roma (Spain) y Levi van Veluw (Netherlands), have made feel very small. :-P

And that´s not all. I´ve been deeply impressed by the great attitude of all the members of the team that have been involved in organising the exhibition: architects, designers, producers… You can feel they love what they do and you notice that in the results. I´d really like to point out the excellent work of Josep Rigol, the exhibition coordinator and Jesús Micó, the curator.

And last but not less, I have really enjoyed meeting this group of artists and spending some days with them. It´s probably the beginning of some good and lasting friendships.

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?
