PROJECT DESCRIPTION

I am presenting this Project with the aim of raising sufficient funds to present an exhibition titled “Unexpected Europe”, that will show a series of photographs taken in thirteen different countries around Europe during 2005 to 2013.

The photographs show a series of events in which they not only highlight the arquitectural aspects and the significant details of the cities and countries visited, but mainly concentrates on the principal people that live there. Therefore I present a series of portraits showing the character of the people in different countries, as well as combining people and striking environments , always highlighting the human imprint on the landscape or monuments.

The exposition comprises of a total of 40 images taken in the following countries, Germany Austria, France, Switzerland, Estonia, Finland, Denmark, Sweden, Belgium, Holland, Norway, Italy and Malta. These images are taken in both black and white and colour. They will be printed in different sizes to show the different aspects of the images and especially to achieve a certain asymmetry in the exhibition. Depending on the distribution in the room, two or three of them will be in a larger size to highlight them in order to focus attention on them.

LOCATION

The intention is to show the photographs of the exhibition in various parts of the island of Tenerife (Canary Islands). The first location will be in the room of exhibitions located within the historic Casa de los Capitanes in San Cristóbal de La Laguna, World Heritage Site, it is a busy pedestrian street that is visited daily by a large number of Spanish and foreign tourists, and there is a tourist information office located in front of the building.

It is possible that the exhibition can be moved to other islands and mainland Spain.

THE AUTHOR

I am a photographer living in Tenerife (Canary Islands, Spain). I began to take photographs in 2004. I particularly like architectural photographs, detailed items that attract my attention and portraits that have character.

I have obtained numerous awards in local, regional and national photographic competitions.

My work has appeared in various expositions along with other photographers and I made my own individual exposition in 2011 about arquitecture and city life. It was called “Con otra Mirada” at the Sala de Arte Paraninfo at the University of La Laguna.

Various photographs of mine can be seen in publications such as:

“Con otra Mirada”, edited by Vicerrectorado de Universidad y Sociedad de la Universidad de La Laguna. It shows a selection of the work used for the exhibition in the Sala de Arte Paraninfo of the University in 2011.

Photography catalogue of international prizes “Rafael Ramos García”, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010.

Environment photography prize of the CajaCanarias, 2007.

Environment photography prize of the CajaCanarias, 2008.

Polyptychs, first and second photography prize “Ciudad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria” 2008 and 2009.

La Manera Atlántica, MEDIAT II Proyect of the European Union.

VI regional prize in photography 2007, Cajas Ahorros Canarias.

VII regional prize in photography 2008, Cajas Ahorros, Canarias.

Photography competition Small Places in Arucas 2011, Mapfre Guanarteme, 2011.

XX Aniversary of Bahía del Pajar, council of San Bartolomé de Tirajana, 2011.

Notebook “Fundación Atlantic Copper”, 2011.

Some of my photographs can be found in the following places:

University of La Laguna, CajaCanarias Bank, Council of San Bartolomé de Tirajana (Gran Canaria), Council of Arona, Council of Santiago del Teide (Tenerife), Port Authority of Santa Cruz, Tenerife, National University of Long Distance Education (UNED), CIT of Guímar, Nautical Club of Gran Canaria, Santander Bank, CADIS-Huesca Federation, ASAGA Canarias.

My concept of photography is based on the art and self expression that allows me to get the best out of myself and to express it in pictures. On the other hand, the Photography supposes an immense way of personal expression, the effective accomplishment of the artistic and creative anxieties of the author.

The photographer is not always a notary of the reality, but across his images it demonstrates a creative zeal of emotions. My photographies try to express a very particular way of seeing and turning the moments of my existence into almost magic instants

I appreciate you have read this project that you work with it and if you can, what you spread
