This Week I’m Featuring : La Fotografia Efectista Abstracta (Abstract Photos)

As a child I wanted to be a footballer and collected the trading cards of players.  I knew all their names and statistics. 
After I had learned them all,  I invented a new game. The game was to look at the border around the edge and try to guess the name of the player according to the tones of the sky in the photo. There were over 400 cards in my collection (at the time the photography was analog).  I found that not even one of the skies was the same. I spent days trying to guess the names  by just looking at a piece of heaven. I think subconsciously that learning how to see the difference in the color helped me a lot.
As a teenager I loved playing with a flashlight, projecting light onto the ceiling.  I would cover the light beam partially with my fingers and create light, shadow and movement.   At the same time I was listening to music and trying to create music-related images.  With Sierra symphonic or progressive rock ie: Pink Floid, Yes, Camel, Genesis, … the rate of movement and form was more leisurely. If I listened to hard rock ie: Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelind, Ramones … The speed of the images increased. 
With this experience,  I created abstract images that were very suggestive.   They woke up my imagination.  Since I didn’t know English,  I created images and stories not related to the subject of songs.   This didn’t happen when I used Spanish songs.  I felt  closed and it did not work.
Later, I started adding layers of painting and drawing.  I would gradually increase the intensity of an area (I was listening to the music of Alan Parsons, Mike Oldfield, Tangerine Dream .. ..) Listening to music helped me feel the change of color tones according to the intensity of light. For me this was just fun. But at one point I wanted to make representational work. I tried painting, but I wasn’t trained in ​​painting and it was a disaster.
 

Eventually after purchasing a SLR camera I discovered that my imagery was based on 

light and the only way of painting with light was through photography. Simoueltansly, I had a passon for the paintings of Van Gogh and his freedom working with colour. Thus, I began my adventures with art and the documentaion of my early works in 1987. My art studies are minimal. I haven’t been in many competitions or contests, since they ask for a curriculum Vitae.
The biggest challenge was in the beginning was technical. It took a while for me to find the right type of film and lighting for my needs. At the time we only had analog and my resources were very limited. I could not afford to have a laboratory, so I got used to creating the image before shooting. I learned to enjoy creating the scene before shooting, and I think that influenced my creativity and my photography.  I  have a way of working and an approach to the art sessions. Each time I take the camera is a challenge.My dream is to have my style recognized when it is viewed by others. I have and want a personal style.Light inspires me.  The light in a restaurant, at a friends house walking in the street … This makes it easy for me to make photographs. It is also easy for me to disconnect and go someplace else in my mind. The privilege of seeing and feeling things. Capturing a moment in time. I see more beauty than is represented. I think that happens to everyone. But capturing that moment is very exciting and unique. The inspiration comes first, and then the question of how to represent them, often I am not successful. Ultimately, I try to capture a moment in time.   Leovi
