Works and projects


This page brings together some works belonging to some of the most recent projects, preceded by an introduction of a few relevant previous works. The process of photographing, editing, and the dialogue with the photographs, quite often interchanging words with them and also producing a book like result, has been a school for improving and getting deeper in photography and into my own aims in the matter. Different techniques and cameras were used, from the self made pinhole film camera to the sophisticated digital, making a wide spectrum group of photographs. Let's the samples talk to you. Thank you


If thinking what exactly photographs consist on after more than a quarter century of practise, giving another name instead of photographs to some of them became a good idea. As a departure point, an odd name for a fishing boat, read on her dinghy (hipantropias), like expressing the rather eccentric among the normal which is many times what photographs are calling to for being suggestive, interesting, perhaps enigmatic, and attractive at the end. Later, "kaleidoscopes" surged from working on color adjustments during processing, resulting in interesting pictures. "Graphoglyphs", in which scripts are used not to give sense. For at the end reach to "ideograms", that seem to bring ideas rather than depicting. All of them becoming like a long term project.


Born with the aim to please potential local clients, they soon derived into something completely different. By means of ink writing on them, the whole idea become completely new, giving strength and meaning to those cyanotypes lacking real motivation. I call these works cyanoscripts. This way connecting with a good amount of my early works of alternative processes not in display here.
