About closing circles

As I announced some weeks ago, I'm exhibiting my work right now in Spain. 

I presented my project "Fear of air" to opt to be exhibited in the art gallery that the Mapfre Foundation has in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. It happened to be selected out of a whole bunch of interesting projects that had applied for this year's competition. I couldn't be happier!

I'm delighted with the result. The gallery's size and disposition are simply perfect. There're many separated spaces which facilitate the creation of rhythm in the sequencing of the series; you can group images by theme, add mystery (since it can all not be seen as a whole), insert pauses... 

And I also had the chance to make some guided tours. It's so nice to get the feedback of the viewers of your work. I'm the kind of person that thinks that an artistic creation isn't really finished until it's showed to others and they express what they feel. The circle closes itself then. 

My gratitude to all of you who have come to help me close the circle. 

"Fear of air" can be visited from the 26th of September till the 8th of November at the Mapfre Foundation, in Juan de Quesada, 10, in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.

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?
