David Izkierdo presents on our Urban photography exhibition 6 photographs where he offers us his personal vision ot Triana
David Izkierdo was born in the district of Triana, Seville, in 1981. At the age of 16 he bought his first photography books and his first cameras in the flea market "La Alameda de Hercules" in Seville. His self-taught learning is later completed with studies in the laboratory of image and treatment of the Digital image Nestor Almendros of Seville. He has exhibited in several Spanish cities and in 2014 he was a finalist in the black and white modality of the I International Biennial of photography of the Sky Gallery Art of Barcelona.
