Exhibition "VISIONES DE AYAMONTE". My fourth individual exhibition.

Next Friday July 5th the opening of my fourth individual exhibition as iphonographer will take place. I have entitled it "VISIONS OF AYAMONTE", and it can be visitd from 5th to 18th July at the beutiful Sala de Las Tinajas of the so called CASA GRANDE, in Ayamonte.

Ayamonte has become my second home since 2006. From that summer onwards, I always spend my holidays there. I begin to feel it as my second home, my second city. I konw its people, its streets, its gastronomy, its beaches.

The exhibitions consists of 48 photographies, groupped by topics, taking advantage of the morphology of the Sala de Las Tinajas. I show my vision about the city and its surroundings. They are all unique moments captured by my iPhone while I wandered around its streets, its beaches, during differente moments of the day, morning, afternoon, evening.

I pretend to give a general vision of how much I love Ayamonte, how I feel it as mine, and how it has become my second home, alternating photos in color, and in black and white, depending on the topic. You are all invited! Thank you!

V.P.O. designed by Toyo Ito. Logroño. #LaRiojaApetece

I was greatly surprised to learn that Logroño has V.P.O. (Public Housings) designed by 2013 Pritzker Prize, the japanese architect Toyo Ito. As it usually happens with this kind of Architecture, they are criticized by the people of the city, but I must say I liked them a lot. It is a privilage for Logroño to have a project designed by one of the most important architects of the world nowadays. 


Me sorprendió muy positivamente saber que Logroño tiene unas V.P.O. diseñadas por el Premio Pritzker 2013, el arquitecto japonés Toyo Ito. Como suele ocurrir con este tipo de Arquitectura, son muy criticadas por los habitantes de la ciudad, pero yo debo decir que me gustaron mucho. Es un privilegio para Logroño contar con un proyecto de uno de los arquitectos más importantes del mundo en la actualidad.

Logroño´s train station designed by Iñaki Ábalos. #LaRiojaApetece

When I arrived at Logroño´s train station, I was really surprised by its architecture. It turned out that to be designed by Iñaki Ábalos, who taught me "Proyectos Arquitectónicos I" at E.T.S.A.M. I really liked it a lot.


Cuando llegué a la estación de tren de Logroño, fue gratamente sorprendido por su arquitectura. Resulta que había sido proyectada por Iñaki Ábalos, quien fue profesor mío de "Proyectos Arquitecónicos I" en la E.T.S.A.M. La verdad es que me gustó mucho.

Collaboration with Olga / Colaboración con Olga. April 2013

This picture is a collaboration between my friend Olga and myself. And this is the text that accompanied the photo when uploaded to IG and EyeEm:

"One of the best things about IG, to me, apart from the birth of the passion for mobile photography, is the good people I have met. Among them, there's a very special one to me, @olgavimo. Olga has become a very close friend, inside and outside IG. We understand each other perfectly, think the same way, look at the world with the same eyes. Olga found herself one day in front of this glass façade and immediately thought of me, shot this pic and sent it to me as a present. She knows me so well... It's my pleasure to edit the pic she shot for me. Thank you, Olga!"
