GET INSPIRED: ROADS TAKE YOU TO PLACES


Roads take you to places es una serie de fotografías inspiradas en la poesía de James Kavanaugh, en particular en su poema The Searchers, dentro del poemario 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.“
Estará expuesta los días 18, 19 y 20 de septiembre en el #espaciosol en la Plaza del 2 de Mayo, 4 en Malasaña.

HOT LIST 2014 x VANIDAD

(text in Spanish below)

Around a year ago I was sitting on the porch in Fuerteventura browsing Vanidad's september issue.

I still hadn't quit my job as an engineer and I wasn't 100% sure I would. Because, the thing is, I'm always very pro follow-your-passions kind of stuff, but one has to admit it's kind of scary, when the time comes. But anyway, a couple of months later I walked out of my cubicle corner office for the last time.

The september issue includes a list with ten portraits of people to watch out for during the next year: artists, musicians, actors, models... the Hotlist, it's called. Last year's was shot by Rubén Vega (photographer who I greatly admire). Those ten pages were a dream.

A year later, this year, it was me behind the lens. And this makes me very happy. Thank you to María and Vanessa at Vanidad for giving me this opportunity.

Hope you like it.

Hace un año o así estaba sentado en el porche de un apartamento en Fuerteventura echándole un vistazo al número de septiembre de Vanidad.

Aún no había dejado mi trabajo de ingeniero y, sinceramente, no estaba 100% seguro de que fuera a hacerlo. Y es que aquí siempre doy mucho la brasa con el persigue-tu-sueño y todo eso, pero hay que admitir que da un poco de canguelo, llegado el momento. Pero bueno, un par de meses después salía de mi cubículo magnífico despacho por última vez.

El número de septiembre siempre trae una lista con los diez personajes a tener en cuenta para el próximo curso: artistas, actores, modelos, músicos... el hotlist, lo llaman. El del año pasado lo fotografió Rubén Vega (fotógrafo al que admiro muy fuerte). Me parecían un sueño esas diez páginas.

Un año después, este año, lo he fotografiado yo. Y esto me pone muy contento. Gracias María y Vanessa por darme esta oportunidad.

Espero que os guste.

ALVARO NAIVE.

I shot Álvaro Naive from Trajano! like a couple of months ago for Grazia Spain. Unfortunately, Grazia Spain is no longer being edited, so... here it is.

On a different note, I feel like time has come for me to start looking for a room in London or Paris.

THE RUM DIARIES.

Going on a ten day roadtrip across Cuba with two friends you just met last year can go extremely wrong.

Or extremely well.

Check out the whole series up on my Instagram. Oh, and thank you Eastpak, your photobag is seriously comfy and good looking. If I was a backpack, I'd marry it. However, I'm just a man, so I'll have to settle with Emma Watson.
