  2. 2. PORTFOLIO I JOSS LÓPEZ PORTFOLIO I JOSS LÓPEZ PAGE 2 PAGE 3 ABOUT ME Visual artist and Bachelor Degree in Fine Arts. Training and ex- perience in artistic, educational and social fields. Photography has been part of me but always in the background, as a refer- ence resource. Now I explore new approaches to express myself by street photography. My camera and I are two bodies perfectly synchronised in a pursuitwanderinginthestreetsinsearchofaone-offmoment. Contents of my shots ate unknown people engaged in their daily routines, their happiness, their business, and sometimes in their sufferings as well. Spirits that unaware of my intentions reflect the situation and life in the streets. My camera and I, a unique body in the search of milliseconds which run ignored and get diluted in the in- finite time. Silence and unwavering that coexisting in our con- dition. My camera and I experiencing the hidden secrets on city streets in search of the meaning of my own existence trying to capture the essence of a documentary, landscape and portrait genres.

  3. 3. PORTFOLIO I JOSS LÓPEZ PORTFOLIO I JOSS LÓPEZ PAGE 4 PAGE 5 SHOOT FROM DISTANCE I look for environmental scenes with interesting characters and take a documentary approach. Shooting from across the street can make me feel more as an onlooker. This picture was taken in Amsterdam. There is no comparison between a pose and a natural photo. When I shoot, I try to capture the essence of the scene and catch the protagonists in the most natural way possible.
  4. 4. PORTFOLIO I JOSS LÓPEZ PORTFOLIO I JOSS LÓPEZ PAGE 6 PAGE 7 We could spend a lot of time debating whether the“posed street portrait”really qualifies as street photography. Portraiture gender has to have these characteristics: - It can be shot candidly or not candidly. - It focuses on the person more than the environment. - It often conveys feelings. There is a lot of interest right now in telling the story. -The face is the focus. STREET PORTRAITS

Shooting into a building from the street gives you a bit of perceived protection by the safety of the window and, in terms of aesthetic, can provide awesome textures to play with.

Also, the composition can be created and combined by different directions from the people’s back that elements integrate the live-frame.

  10. 10. PORTFOLIO I JOSS LÓPEZ PAGE 18 “To me, the most important characteristic is having a sharp eye and being aware of the environment around you. This means looking out for, not just colours, shapes, lights, shadows and so on, but observing people and how they appear and act as well. Knowing the environment will help in preparing for that moment.”
