TALENTO&CO x TRENDIPIA/INDITEX.

I wrote and directed a short film for Trendipia and INDITEX.

It's a short clip to promote the launch of a national design contest hosted by Trendipia and supported by INDITEX. It features the lovely Chloé Wallace and some of my closest friends, it's actually been great being able to share this experience with them. Some of them have been by my side forever, even before I decided to give photography and directing a real try. Couldn't think of a better way to thank them than including them in this project.

Specially when it wasn't that long ago (not even a year has passed since I quit my engineering job) that I was in a similar position to those students participating in the contest today: lots of ideas, one foot in the pro world, lots of uncertainty and, above all, the feeling that there was really nothing else in the world I'd rather be doing.

This is my cut, with text in English. Hope you like it.

ALBA GALOCHA x YO DONA.

I shot Alba Galocha for the cover of YoDona.

This is actually my first cover for a printed magazine. Knowing around 250.000 copies of this were distributed on that day makes me quite happy. I'd like to thank André Gianzo and Sara Padilla at YoDona for the opportunity, it's a big milestone for me.

Hope you like it!

DASHA SERGEVA x VEIN.

I shot Dasha Sergeva for VEIN.

The article, dedicated to Spanish designer Miguel Becer and his brand MANÉMANÉ, features a meta-portrait of Dasha and Miguel. I've been wanting to do something like this for a while. I might explore this further in an editorial context.

I will, actually.

GET INSPIRED: ROADS TAKE YOU TO PLACES

Roads take you to places is a series of photographs based on James Kavanaugh's poetry, in particular in his poem The Searchers, part of There are men too gentle to live amongst wolves.

“I am one of the searchers. There are, I believe, millions of us. We are not unhappy, but neither are we really content. We continue to explore life, hoping to uncover its ultimate secret. We continue to explore ourselves, hoping to understand. We like to walk along the beach, we are drawn by the ocean, taken by its power, its unceasing motion, its mystery and unspeakable beauty. We like forests and mountains, deserts and hidden rivers, and the lonely cities as well. Our sadness is as much a part of our lives as is our laughter. To share our sadness with one we love is perhaps as great a joy as we can know - unless it be to share our laughter.“
It was exhibited in #espaciosol (Plaza del 2 de Mayo, 4, Madrid) in september 2014.

Limited edition and numbered copies will be on sale shortly.
