Madrid based photographer Sergio de Luz first step into the world of photography took place on his several trips with an old manual camera. Back in those early days he perceived an infinite interest in the detail of the simple, transforming the everyday and seemingly pointless into something beautiful.
Over the years and with the advent of cameras on mobile devices he took advantage of this new tool instantly and always connected with music. For its immediacy, without previous amendments, as an honest companion in his quest for the perfect image. Transforming the daily results - always with a soundtrack leading to new images, new discoveries.
In this journey some features have been and are a constant in mobile photography of Sergio de Luz. As if a sly wink to his last name, he is able to create the perfect contrast between light and shadow as a single medium to raise the volume in seemingly flat spaces. In this way a recurring theme in his work is a natural tendency, sometimes unconsciously to deconstruct reality into perfectly balanced geometric elements for the final composition.
Regardless of the technical considerations or perhaps accompanied by them, Sergio de Luz mobile photography has a trans-formative effect. Turning an object or seemingly simple unrecognizable scene into an aesthetically beautiful image, without resorting to retouching. Taken in such diverse places as Paris, Bombay, New York and Barcelona capturing the essence of places and portraits using light as the central element.
Throughout his career Sergio de Luz has had the opportunity to present his work along with great artists such as Ouka Lele, Cristina Garcia Rodero and Miquel Barceló.
