Ernest Fernández Garrido (Sabadell, Barcelona 1977)
Lensculture Street Photography Awards Finalist 2017
Someone told me about my work… “I love your photographs because looking at them is like going out for a city stroll… but without moving”. I consider myself as a self-taught photographer wishing to capture the street energy wherever I go.
I seek a certain self-conciousness in my pictures that recalls a memory, gives us a little knowing smile or simply captures the attention due to a framing element. There’s no prior preparation in any of my pictures, what’s more, some of them are taken while I go for a walk with my younger daughter… even sometimes, knowing me, she covertly points out to me where can I take a good street photograph.
Nowadays my work is focussed on street photography, influenced by documental and social photography. I’m a member of the collective “PHOTOCHANGE PROJECT”, composed of photographers from different Spain locations.
