Project Description

“A mar mirando” containts the words “sea” and “looking”. Let’s say that the meaning can be related to something like “looking at the seaside” more literally speaking, or “looking bad to something” in a very local dialect.

I told a story about this project in this gallery post. A selection from the displayed photographs were exhibited at the gallery “El Pópulo” in Cádiz during the spring and at the gallery 1de7 Espacio de autor in Seville.

The story behind this photographic serie goes back to the spring of 2013, during my stay in Cádiz, where i was adopting a beautiful atelier in the Castle of St. Catalina during a period of three months. These are memories I keep from visiting abandoned anchored boats and some fishermen working in outlaw conditions, rebuilding with care and “gaditane” patience boats and old fishing tools in an “homemade” environment.

With respect to the stories behind all these boats and fascinated by the textures and colors that Sun, time and decay have created… I invite you to “a mar mirar” in life, finding the beauty in details that remain all around, far and near…
