MY THING FOR GYMNASTICS

Part of my younger years were spent doing a lot of sports, but I had a thing for gymnastics which I got to practice for six or seven years.

That’s why I felt so happy when I got a call to do a photoshoot before a competition, I was thrilled to do it!

It brought me back to those days when training was hard, so hard you could see your hands peeled off and it didn’t matter, when you get to the point when you challenge your body, when you know you have your limits and still feel the need to try it until you make it right. I must say that gimnastics shaped me a lot into the person I am today.

When I was in there, I felt like if I could I would do it again, then I remembered my physical capacity ain’t the same as it used to…

But it was fun to go back in there with my camera!

A PHOTOGRAPHER IN EL SALVADOR

El Salvador is a country well known nowadays for it’s history of recent violence. This may be the only reason why it’s known for worldwide.

But for us, citizens moving in our daily chores, it’s also the place where we try to develop other skills.

Perhaps for me, I’ve found my nest in photography. It started as something to play with while being alone for some time,  in Barcelona a few years back, as it turns out I had something I could use to freeze moments, places, people, etc.

After developing the first few films, which by then I had found a place where I could get good quality for less than 6 euros, I was seeing something that made me happy, satisfied in ways I couldn’t do before.

Further down the path, I decided it was time to go deeper into the subject, I wanted to experiment, I wanted to try lights, to try exposures, to capture other things besides the usual stuff…

Well, it’s an exercise, the whole time is a working progress, in which I still learn.

I am thinking of where I want to go, what else there is to explore in the field, and believe me when I tell, that so far it’s the most satisfying thing for me to do.

To see others happy with my work, makes me happy too…inexplicably happy…
