Explore is a project to get out of my comfort zone in urban photography, and to experiment with nature. It was born as a concrete idea, and the process was totally intuitive. During some excursions, I took photographs of the motifs I felt were curious. This project has a certain emotional side because hiking is one of my passions. The focus was not showing the Canary landscapes in a spectacular way, but to serve as an invitation to the viewers to explore them. In this set, I have looked for the unusual, the unexpected, and in the final selection saturated colors standout, especially different tones of brown and green. Explore throws me out of the street photography field that I normally present, and it also works as my personal introduction gallery to the nature that we find in the Canary Islands.
SEIGAR is an English philologist, a highschool teacher, and a curious photographer. He is a fetishist for reflections, saturated colors, details and religious icons. He feels passion for pop culture that shows in his series. He considers himself a traveler and an urban street photographer. His aim as an artist is to tell tales with his camera, to capture moments but trying to give them a new frame and perspective. Travelling is his inspiration. However, he tries to show more than mere postcards from his visits, creating a continuous conceptual line story from his trips. The details and subject matters come to his camera once and once again, almost becoming an obsession. His three most ambitious projects so far are his “Plastic People", a study on anthropology and sociology that focuses on the humanization of the mannequins he finds in the shop windows all over the world, "Response to Ceal Floyer for the Summer Exhibition" a conceptual work that understands art as a form of communication, and his "Tales of a city", an ongoing series taken in London. He usually covers public events with his camera showing his interest for social documentary photography. He has participated in several exhibitions, and his works have also been featured in international publications. He writes for The Cultural Magazine about photography.
