Ernest Fernández Garrido (Sabadell, Barcelona 1977)
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.
