New webpage “FranviruesPhotos”

I have been working  with my new webpage in the last weeks in order to present an organized work and easy sight of my photographs.

I will add new photos in the future but for the moment, it is a first step to show part of my work . “Moments project” is a collection of photos based on the “decisive moment”, and it may grow in the future if I continue taking some other interesting photos….I will continue on projects such as “Conil Beach”, but I work basically guided by my intuition trying to take individual images of different situations (street photography, nature and human beings..Etc)

I hope you like it and at least have a good time with my photography…See you on the streets!



The II Intenational Contemporary Art Fair in Seville (SacoFair)


The II Intenational Contemporary Art Fair (Sacofair) in Seville opens tomorrow and I will be as a contributor artist in project, which represents artists in Spain and other countries, with some of my photographs.

I love visiting museums observing paintings and other expressions of art and It is an honor to contribute, in a small part through fomentarte, to art and culture in general.

At the same time, it will be a very good opportunity to see all the new movements in art (paintings, sculpture, photography…) and a way of contact with interesting people…

“Train Station” on

©franvirues Train Station light

La obra “Train Station” ha sio elegida  para formar parte dentro de la exposición itinerante de . Está dentro de las preseleccionadas y no optará a los premios, pero me siento contento que haya sido elegida entre tantas en el universo y que se vea esta foto en las estaciones de ferrocarril de España. Las estaciones me atraen especialmente, suponen un punto de partida para cualquier viajero y el inicio de futuras experiencias, ilusiones…

El escritor Carlos Ruiz Zafón dice  “si me pierdo , que me busquen en una estación de tren..”, transmitiendo la fascinación por estos lugares. Desde luego que mucha vida transcurre en una estación de tren: idas y vueltas, , cansancio, encuentros y despedidas, ilusión, viajes,…..etc, como para ser desaprovechado por cualquier observador..

The work”Train Station” has chosen to be part  within the traveling exhibition of It is within the pre-selected ones and not opt for the final awards, but I’m happy that has been chosen among many in the universe and to display this photo in railway stations of Spain. Stations attract me especially, and they are a starting point for any traveler and the beginning of future experiences, dreams …

The writer Carlos Ruiz Zafon says “If I get lost, look for me in a train station ..”, conveying the fascination with these places. Of course a lot of life takes place in a train station: comings and goings,fatigue, meetings and leavings,excitements, trips, ….. etc, to be missed by any observer ..
