The exhibition: Las Antequeranas de la Feria

The antequerana woman as the exclusive protagonist of my exhibition

I place special emphasis on the social and cultural aspect: the general pride of the Spanish women of Andalusia wearing the flamenco dresses. These women have the power to change or transform those dresses through fashion and time. It is fascinating to see how yesterday's girls become today's mothers, and continue the tradition by dressing up together with their children.

The town of Antequera never in the past had organized a social exhibition, only about women dressed in flamenco. It is a great opportunity to see tradition and history live. These portraits of the Antequeranas are not only cause of admiration, but also a heritage for future generations.

From August 12th to 22nd of 2019, Monday to Friday, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., Saturdays, Sundays and holidays closed. Antonio Montiel Exhibition Hall (Antequera City Hall, C/Infante D.Fernando 70, Antequera, Spain)

THE OPENING

 
 

Family Documentary

Your family’s love, happiness, chaos and drama

No blurry background here. In this style of photography background is highlighted and is used to add a deeper dimension, to focus on that which we overlook in daily life. What inspires me to create the images the way I do?  Childhood itself. I see childhood as the most positive period of a person’s life. In childhood daily life happens moods, emotions, relationships, brilliant ideas, freedom. All this dynamic exists in each and every family. It’s mine, as a photographer’s choice, to select particular moments, to tell the family’s story. So I choose positive ones.

Visual & written stories

Good photography is worth a thousand words. However, sometimes it is very important to tell a written story too, to understand it more deeply. In such cases, a journalistic approach comes to my photograpy. Recent works:

  • Article about “La Fiesta de los Patios” in 15min, one of the largest news websites in Lithuania.

  • Article about Semana Santa in 15min, one of the largest news websites in Lithuania.

  • Article about Semana Santa in bernardinai.lt, largest Christian online newspaper in Lithuania.

Social projects

About the society we live in

On October 2017, together with "The People with Down Syndrome and Their Custodians Association" we have launched a social photo project "I Can Do More Than You Think. Just Let Me Prove It. „The aim of this campaign was to continue the educational work to increase the level of tolerance for people with disabilities. The project ended with an exhibition.
