Other spectacular snaps in the identical model present the Bunkers – an outdated army base which overlooks Barcelona, Mount Tibidabo and the amusement park positioned there, in addition to Cituadella Park. “I am living right next to the Sagrada Familia and every day, from my window, I see thousands of tourists coming from all sides and almost always making the same photos of the temple of Gaudí,” he mentioned.
“To attempt to take a special image – and never repeat these footage – I went in quest of one other angle for that postcard. This was the primary I made from the sky and 360 levels. The end result happy me a lot that I made a decision to repeat the method in the principle sights of Barcelona.

“In a world where 90 million photos are shared daily on Instagram, I like images that break this logic of repetition and try to print a new look at things. For me, photography is about experimentation and innovation. I have in my favour the fact that I chose a city that is in the heart of many people to develop my project.”
