live near Barcelona, I'm 22 and I take pictures of punk shows with
many of them while touring Europe and the US with my
and all of them in black and white."
"Summer of 2014 I decided to start to taking pictures in a different
rescued an old Nikon EF300 I found in a lake in Bezas (Teruel, Spain)
when I was about 8 or 9 years old, and I asked my friends to let me take pictures of
as if we were part of the artwork of a hardcore punk album."
now I'm using a camera called Praktica Super TL1000. It's a beauty
from the German Democratic Republic, sold between 1980 and 1986. It's
so cheap, and very durable, it has problems sometimes with the
mirror, but I'm in love with it anyways. I started to shoot film with
that Nikon EF300, but I changed to the Praktica after a few months.
like the Praktica because it doesn't needs electricity (only for the
exposure meter, and I don't use it anyways because you know, I take
pictures of punk shows, not weddings), so it let you control
everything you're doing. That's what I hate from digital cameras,
they make you do what an engineer wanted. Also you can't buy a
digital camera for 35€ that can give you the same results that my
Praktica can. Yes, of course, I will spend more money on film, buy
I'll enjoy it and I'll know what I'm doing, which is way more
rewarding for me because I'm not a professional, so I don't need it
to be “perfect”."
don't think I'm an artist, and I've been taking pictures for a very
short time. I didn't see criticism from anybody that isn't a close
friend, so I guess I never have been exposed publicly to that. I
don't care too much about that, I never get attached to any
particular mantra, quote or saying, so I just try to be myself,
because I change and so do my ideas."
