Background

In october 2012, I began to walk and photograph Madrid. In 2014 I launched my first crowdfunding-project in Verkami . 700 people participated and my first book Callejeando Madrid was the result. Two intense years which became a great personal experience that surpassed my expectations. After a short break, in the fall of 2014 I started working more in black and white and, in September 2015 I began to share my project Madrid Street Photography. Every day, at 9 in the morning, I share a photograph in Facebook. The great classics of black and white street photography and other photographers more current like Trent Parke, Eamon Doyle, Daido Moriyama…are a reference and inspiration to me

The response on your part has, again, exceeded my expectations. More than 30.000 people follow the project on Facebook. Many of you have asked me when I was going to publish a new book, this has encouraged me to launch this second campaign of crowdfunding.

Today, two years and 600 shared photographs later, I invite you to participate in the publication of a new book.

The Book

Street photography has become a passion, an excuse to wander aimlessly through the city. After 5 years of strolling, I feel like a “Flâneur” and I believe that this word perfectly defines what this new project means to me, so I decided it would become the title of the book.

This work is presented as a visual and emotional diary that connects me to Madrid. Inside the book you will find around 45 images, product of my solitary walks, surrounded by white to reinforce the idea of framing. It is that scene selected, and no other, abstracted from all the noise and visual pollution of the city. The entire process of editing, design and printing is being done with great care. The objective is that you can go quietly through the images and that you return again and again to discover new details. Every image has a story that builds the history of my search for light and chiaroscuro.

This new book is the product of the work of the last five years.

What will be the destination of our contributions:

First goal: 7.980 euros to cover part of the costs of producing this book: editing, design, printing, binding… as well as the costs for this platform management.

Second goal: 14.000 euros to offer a photography workshop to a group of 15-20 artists with intellectual disability in Madrid. Eva Sala, photographer specialized in social projects (NOPHOTOVOZ y Las Cientovolando) Kamikazes de la imagen and a Non Profit Organization of Madrid will collaborate in this course.

For whom I made this book

  • For all those who are following my work in Madrid Street Photography
  • For all lovers of black and white photography who want to discover the city from this point of view.
  • For all those who supported my previous project Callejeando Madrid
  • For all those who want to support projects of photography workshops for artists and groups with more difficulty to access this medium.

#04 / Comienza la impresión de Flâneur

Buenos días,
el lunes 3 de julio, empieza la impresión del libro. Ayer me acerqué a Gráficas Palermo y recogí las pruebas de color de las fotografías que van en el libro. Se trata de un trabajo previo en el que se revisa que no habrá errores en los matices de color. La verdad estoy muy contento con el resultado. Ahora queda la impresión y la encuadernación del libro...por fin!!!
Si todo va bien, el próximo día 13 de julio será la presentación y podrás recoger tu ejemplar.
la semana que viene te confirmo hora y lugar.
Saludos!!!!

#03 / El Micro Mecenazgo para Flâneur ha finalizado

Han pasado 40 días y el crowdfunding ha finalizado. Lo primero que siento es gratitud y lo más adecuado en este momento es decir GRACIAS.

Cuarenta días de no parar para dar a conocer este humilde trabajo, de "dar la vara" a través de las redes, el whatsapp, el correo electrónico, el teléfono. También aprovecho para pedir disculpas por haber sido, en algunos casos, demasiado insistente.

Pero ahora viene lo mejor, empiezo el trabajo de producción del libro. Mi objetivo es que esté impreso la tercera semana de junio, y hacer una presentación para que también puedas recoger tu ejemplar. En dos semanas te daré información más precisa.

La cantidad recaudada asciende a 9.528 €. De esta cantidad habrá que descontar los gastos de gestión de Verkami, las comisiones de las pasarelas de pago y el IVA. Como te decía en mi último correo, no se han conseguido los 14.000 € pero tengo la determinación de conseguir el resto de financiación para el Taller de Fotografía y prometo seguir informándote.

#02 / ALBRICIAS!!! EL LIBRO YA ES POSIBLE

Como quizás ya sepas, ayer conseguí alcanzar el primer objetivo de 8000 €

A partir de este momento, todas las aportaciones serán destinadas a realizar el Taller de Fotografía para Artistas con Discapacidad Intelectual. Además, todos los beneficios que se generen por la venta de los ejemplares del libro que no formen parte de las recompensas de este crowdfunding serán destinados también a este objetivo.

AYUDAME A DIFUNDIR ESTE VIDEO
Ayer preparé un vídeo, que comparto también contigo, para promocionar esta segunda fase del proyecto de la que todavía quedan 16 días!!!

El domingo 30 de abril, a las 10:00 hrs. se emitirá una entrevista , que me han hecho en el programa de Radio 3, Equilibristas en la que hablo del proyecto, por si te apetece escucharlo.
Te sigo pidiendo todo el apoyo para dar visibilidad y difusión al… read more

#01 / Presentación del Proyecto flâneur, una reunión de amigos

Ayer, más de 70 personas nos acompañaron a Eva Sala y a mi a la presentación del proyecto *flâneur* en B The Travel Brand, que nos había cedido un espacio para hacerla.

Hoy, he recibido el siguiente correo: "Este trabajo tiene muchísimas cosas buenas pero sin duda, una de las mejores, es poder conocer a gente tan maravillosa como vosotros que desarrolla proyectos tan interesantes. Yo ya estoy deseando tener el librito de Flâneur en mis manos" Y al leerlo, me ha dado un subidón :-)

Esta ha sido mi contestación: "La verdad es que estos proyectos tan interesantes no serían posibles sin la generosidad de las personas que los apoyan…y es que pienso que todo el mundo tiene ese punto maravilloso, solo tiene que encontrar la motivación para sacarlo" y así lo creo.

Todo fue según lo previsto: yo conte todo mi proceso… read more
