In the remote mountain villages of the Pyrenees, close to the border of Spain with France, passion runs high. Passion for life, for love and of course, for good times.
Juan Carlos was born and raised here before being lured to the coast by Barcelona. Then onward to Milan, to Paris, Brussels and eventually to London. His life experiences would sit comfortably in a movie by Pedro Almodovar.
Juan Carlos´ photographic pedigree is solid. Qualifications at IDEP in Barcelona and IED in Milan led to his working on fashion shoots for Vogue Italia, Vogue Uomo and Grazia. In Sydney, he augmented his experience at the renowned Australian Centre of Photography, where he was awarded 1st prize for his photograph: Aina.
His passions for film, for fashion, for art history and for nature give him a unique, personal edge.
His style could be described as cinematographic. It is honest, open, often raw and always inspiring.
In 2017 Juan Carlos published his first book: I SEE YOU, a collection of portraits taken between the years 2000 to 2017 from his travels through Europe and Australia. This project was Highly Commended in the Australian Photography Magazine's 2018 Photographer of the Year competition and in the Capture Magazine's 2019 Australasia's Top Emerging Photographers
Four years living in Tokyo from 2018 inspired Juan Carlos’ latest project: Souls of Japan. This creative body of work won the “Nyu-Sen” prize in 2020 - the 45th Exhibition of the Japan Professional Photographers Society, a national award. It can be enjoyed here on this website.
Having satisfied his wanderlust, Juan Carlos returned to Spain in mid 2022 where his photography and creativity continúes to grow and evolve.
