Texts images (on the website of Monochrome Awards):
Part from a shooting at Fuerteventura island. It was intended to shoot on a sunny day at the Corralejo Dunes national park- especially for color images! -, but the weather turned so cloudy that the main idea was discarded.
There was just one man standing at the top on the dune, so he turned to be a point to give meaning and scale to the whole atmospheric landscape.
This is one of these situations where photographers have to give the previous idea away and be open to new ways and improvisation.
Shot on Niemeyer Center in Avilés, Spain. Architect Oscar Niemeyer’s sci-fi-like building shapes give an unreal atmosphere impression, that seems opossite with the calmed reality of the walking kid.
