a busy 2018, highlighting what I love most, the human being, the sport photography & Active Outdoors Lifestyle, and 2019 that begins intensely at the visual level. Departure on January 2, 2019 for a 6-day adventure, discovering the cobbled streets of Barcelona. Welcome to everyone to my ArchiStreeture in Barcelona.
I wanted to rediscover a deep work, a visual quest, working on low lights, highlights, deep shadows, contrast, the focus on people, the graphic aspect, and city life in Barcelona. Spain is one of my beloved countries having lived there for a few years. This Mediterranean way of life, tapas, ancient narrow streets, a warm and soothing and comforting light, places that one discovers around a bustling alley, everything was there in place for a visit worth every gold nugget.
Archistreeture is the conjuncture of architecture and Street photography, because the city conceals both hidden and visible jewels, between Gaudi, Joan Miro, Picasso to name only some of the most famous talents who lived in this superb city.
On the other hand, in my quest for minimalism, I travelled light, 1 hand-luggage for 7 days, with as only gear, my Fujifilm X-T3, my fujifilm 23mm 1.4 (35mm in Full Frame), and my fujifilm 35mm 1.4 (equivalent 50mm FF). I used the latter for 2 hours, felt like it wasn’t heading the way I wanted, and switched back to the 35mm, in journalistic mode. Very very minimalist knowing me usually full of material in my concepts.
This city has given me more desires, others crazier than others, focused projects, “foolish” ideas, places suitable for outdoor shootings, lifestyle for brands around the world, meetings, visions, exchange, in short … a 2019 year that looks beautiful, full of great energy, and with the desire to give even more, and to receive even more.
Let’s take some pictures of this trip, this archistreeture, and see you soon for new visual adventures and joint projects, in order to set up your brand, your image, your visuals in 2019.
