Born in Madrid, Spain but drawn to Manchester, UK, where he has lived for over 17 years, Guille Ibañez is a photographer whose work focuses on culture, tradition and human interaction. Originally trained as a cinematographer, he still combines professional film and video work with his photography. The tension between the moving and the still image goes to the heart of Guille's work, and his pictures are often referred to as being like ‘frames from a film’.
Guille develops long term projects mostly in his home country of Spain, but he also works within the UK, South East Asia or Africa. Religion and human faith play a major part in his work which has been exhibited in many festivals around the globe and has been recently awarded Prizes at Brussels Street Photography Festival, Miami Photography Festival to name just a few.
