This blog allowed me to get in contact with many fellow photographers over the last years, yet it mostly remained “electronic” correspondance. Therefore as our trip leads us to many places in the world, I believe it is a great opportunity to meet some of you and why not, spend some hours shooting in the streets. For those willing to participate, I also ask them to answer three short questions in order to know a bit more about them, their work and any recommendations on where to shoot in their city.
Daniel is the first one to participate, thanks for that. I started exchanging emails with him about a year ago, so it was a real pleasure to meet him for real and go shoot some street photography. All of Daniel’s shots were taken with his Leica M9 (please on pictures to see high res).
I) Tell me a bit about you
I am a self taught photographer who started in photography “por amor al arte” (“for love or art”) and later became professional to make some money out of this hobby that kept me broke all the time. I have been publishing portraits and reportages since 1993 on magazines in Spain and some international too (El Pais Semanal, Vanity Fair, Yo Dona, Elle, Rolling Stone, etc.) I try to keep a true spirit for real photography even nowadays it’s getting harder and harder to live out of this profession. In street photography I always liked Cartier-Bresson, Doisneau, Willy Ronis, André Kertzész, Jean Loup Sieff, etc.
