I’m starting a new project about portraits of people involved with culture in Barcelona.
As a first work,I portrayed well-known luthier David Bagué at his atelier in the neighborhood of Gràcia, in Barcelona.
Bagué started making auto didactic string instruments at the age of twelve and later completed the training in Cremona (Italy). In 2003, the Creu de Sant Jordi was granted to him in recognition of the international prestige reached in his field and to the pioneering work developed in this field in Catalonia. Among the musicians possessing a Bagué are the Italian violinist Ruggero Ricci, the Greek Leonidas Kavakos and the member of the Casals Quartet, Abel Tomàs.
Last Friday I’ve shooting the promo pictures for Trio per l’Art, a wonderful chamber group formed by Gaëtane Duynslaeger (cello), Helena Ginès (piano) and David Olmedo (violin).
One year later I came back to beautiful Greece, in a new sailing trip. This time in the Ionian Sea, from Préveza to Ithaca, to Paxos, and back.
It is difficult to assimilate so much beauty and even more, to try to express it with the camera.
Yesterday evening I was pleased to present my book “músics” in the wonderful art déco building of the Conservatori Municipal de Música de Barcelona. My friend Jordi Soley did an interesting speech about art and artists, and the talented members of Quartet Clandestí offered us a couple of pieces by Mendelssohn and Dvorak.
Funny video & photo session with the great Mrs. Jones Trio, preparing their Tour 2019.
Mrs. Jones Trio are Loreto Muñoz Osorio, voice, Felipe Contreras on double bass and Joel Moreno on guitar. Lots of swing!
After almost 5 years portraying musicians, I have gathered a selection of 66 portraits in músics, an 80 page book, excellently printed by Nova Era.
The book will be presented at the Conservatori del Bruc in Barcelona on 16 May at 8 pm. We will also have the participation and talent of the Quartet Clandestí musicians who will perform works by Mendelssohn and Dvorak.
I’ve been shooting Orla’s portrait this morning. Orla is a young Irish girl who is working to become an actress. I'm sure she'll make it.
We spent a nice afternoon with those three music geniuses, shooting portraits of all their possible combinations.
Tempus Trio are Maria Tió, violin, Ricard Rovirosa, piano and Ferran Bardolet, cello.
