Nature

Last weekend I went to my mom’s village up in the mountain in Gredos, Ávila. Every time I need to scape and recharge my batteries I go there. The weather is amazing, so cold at night that even in the summer you need to sleep with a blanket or wear long sleeves (fyi: I live in the hot hot hot Madrid), the silence is golden, if you listen carefully you can hear the sound of the water flowing on the plaza’s fountain.

With almost no signal on your phone, it’s the perfect place to evade your daily life and problems. And the perfect place to take this kind of photographs.

Obsessions

Some years ago someone said to me that I found beauty in everything. I was shocked. For a few seconds I didn’t know what to say. I never thought about my obsession with photography, with taking photos of everything at my sight in those terms, such profound terms. Since that Sunday morning I’ve been trying to see the beauty in everything, to search for it, but not just the outside but the inside, how I feel when I look at something, a flower, a street full of people, a building and the passing of time… Maybe searching for a reflection of myself, maybe trying to be that reflection.

Hace algunos años alguien me dijo que encontraba belleza en todo. Me quedé estupefacta. Durante unos segundos no supe qué decir. Nunca había pensado en mi obsesión por la fotografía, por hacer fotos de todo lo que me rodea, en esos términos, esos términos tan profundos. Desde aquella mañana de domingo he estado intentando ver la belleza en todo, buscarla, pero no sólo la exterior sino la interior, cómo me siento cuando miro algo, una flor, una calle llena de gente, un edificio y el paso del tiempo… Quizá buscando un reflejo de mí misma, quizá intentando ser ese reflejo.

BranchI’m unsure about a lot of things, but there’s only one thing I know for sure I will always count on: photography. I’ll continue my search for beauty, changing, evolving, my source of inspiration is everything in my sight.

No estoy segura de muchas cosas, pero hay una sola con la que sé seguro que siempre contaré: la fotografía. Continuaré mi búsqueda de la belleza, cambiando, evolucionando, mi fuente de inspiración es todo lo que tengo ante mis ojos.
