David Cortijo Arellano’s Photos

,

First first. Sorry for my English. I live in a small town called Rubi. 15 miles from Barcelona. Big house, small TV, great views from my window.

I take pictures of masses of people, Friends, Girls, Women.

I use an Olympus 300 and Kodak Easy Load 35. Phone camera.

I Ain’t finished my studies. But I meet people that help me, like my friend Andrea and my old teacher Miguel. My dad. First photos on my life. RIP.

Howling At Moons

Where do you live?
I live in Minnesota, but not for much longer. New York here I come.

What do you take pictures of?
I take pictures of anything that appeals to me. I always have some sort of camera with me ready to capture anything I find beautiful at that moment.

What kind of camera do you use?
Lately I have been mostly using disposable cameras. They’re perfectly portable. When shooting digitally, which is rare for me these days, I use my Nikon d40.

Are you formally trained in photography?
I currently attend an arts high school, where I major in media arts. I’ll be continuing my studies at SVA next year.

Cats, art, food. What else do you need?
