New portrait: David Bagué by Toni Ricart

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.

Sailing the Ionian Sea by Toni Ricart

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.

Last sunday I shot Eduard Jener portrait.

Eduard has been my neighbour for many years. He is the undisputed cultural chronicler of Sant Cugat. During the last 25 years he has written critiques of all the concerts, plays and performing arts in general, celebrated in the city, with a precise and very personal style.
