“El azar es lo único que no se puede comprar. Tienes que pagar por ello y tienes que pagar con tu vida, pasar mucho tiempo, pagar con tiempo, no con despilfarro de tiempo, sino con gasto de tiempo”.
“Chance is the only thing you can not buy, you have to pay for it and you have to pay with your life, spend a lot of time, pay with time, not with waste of time, but with time”.

When I go to an event and at the beginning I see some very interesting characters, I always think that there are stories to tell and I must be patient and alert...When all the elements join and show you in a peculiar way, I feel that work hard is worth doing..And when my subjectivity and way of looking appear in the scene, I finally realize that I have connected not only with that specific moment but also with all the event…
It was a big day in Cadiz, with many visitors from all parts of Spain and I spent my day off walking, enjoying and taking photos in this Comedy Party. For me The Carnival of Cadiz is an opportunity to dust off my camera, observe people and shoot in those special days. After an exhausted day in Cadiz, I returned to my town by train. The Train Station was crowded and I took this image: groups of people, separated by the windows of that train, showed in front of me with different behaviors….
I went to El Bosque town in Cadiz some weeks ago with a clear objective of seeing the Recreation of “the disasters of war” etchings, which were painted by the famous painter Goya in the 19th century , and It did not disappoint me at all.
These photos are a sample of some scenes (perfectly and surprisingly recreated by organizers within the Battle of French event). I have tried to show them in chronological order , belonging the first photo to the dance of welcoming act and the second one the dance of fire act, previously to the Recreation.
Experts says that in those great series everybody share the condition of victims: French, women, plebs..Undoubtedly all we lose with Wars…
