Just got a photography grant!

This is great news for me! :-)

"El invernadero" (grant´s name) is offered by the cultural centre "Puertas de Castilla" in Murcia, in the south of Spain. Around 250 photography projects were given in and only 12 were selected. And I´m one of those 12!!! I couldn´t be happier...

Four tutors and six very well known spanish photographers (Ricky Dávila, Xavier Ribas, Carlos Spottorno...) will review our work on a monthly basis during 2011. They will give us their opinion and lead us so we can achieve good results.

At the end of the year five projects (out of the 12) will be selected to conform a collective exhibition.

I´m participating with a photography project I´m doing in the Netherlands. "Barreras" is its temporary name. It´s about the control of the sea in that country along the centuries and the relationship I see between that and occidental people´s life. A bit too conceptual for the moment, but I hope I can come out with something interesting... 

Time to get focus now!

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?
