    The Monochrome Experience: The Kiss

    V-J Day in Times Square is a photograph by Alfred Eisenstaedt that portrays a U.S. Navy sailor grabbing and kissing a nurse on Victory over Japan Day in New York City’s Times Square on August 14, 1945. In my picture there is no war or victory. They are a couple who celebrate their love in […]

    The Monochrome Experience: No Way!

    A smile appears drawn and someone thinks: No way! The couple practicing Chi Kung or Qi Gong, Tai Chi or some modality in the park. The subject with the package in the middle of Aragon Street. The white lines of the asphalt point towards him. Women with cell phones in another dimension of reality, the […]

    The Monochrome Experience: Planning Futures

    People do not live in the present. We are moving towards a future, as if we were going to embark on a long journey, without realizing that as passengers we are already in transit, the transit of the present. There are also those who decide to live in the past, on experiences forgetting that they […]

    The Monochrome Experience: Wrapped Statues in White Cloth and Nets

    Modern art visited the Columbus monument in Barcelona. A necessary restoration of the statues of the base (66 ft) wide circle, with four staircases. For me, in my humble opinion, now the statues from the buttresses and against the pedestal reach the top artistic zenith. They should always be like that: wrapped in white fabrics and knotted networks. The viewer imagines the interior they hide, emulating the artistic works of Christo Javacheff. Awesome!

    The Monochrome Experience: Giants

    Photographing giants is a festive activity that modifies our human scale. We are insignificant if we compare ourselves with them. They dance and wear their best clothes. It is something magnificent that allows us to daydream and forget the gear of redistribution of wealth and intrusive digital marketing.

    The Monochrome Experience: Strange Things

    Sometimes photographs capture strange situations. A bike that looks like a motorcycle. A woman with sunglasses who put her hand on her forehead so as not to be blinded by light. The old man looking inside his nose. The bike with too many wheels. One strange street with the two men below and the woman at the window (surreal environment permeates everything). The inflatable helicopter patrolling the city. The crosswalk crowded with babies in strollers…

    The Monochrome Experience: Acrobats

    In the sand of a beach, during the summer, you can discover acrobats of concentration, acrobats who make the vertical to read an invisible book and acrobats who perform risky somersaults driving themselves into the trunk of a tree from a shipwreck. Anything goes up.
