Street Photo of the week by Juan María Rodríguez
Not much is known about Spanish Street Photographer Juan María Rodríguez. We spotted him through our Flickr Streethunters.net Readers group. We researched him as much as possible but not many things could be discovered. So, all we know about Juan María Rodríguez is that he is from Almería Spain and that he currently lives in Seville Spain. He uses a mixture of monochrome and black and white and his photos seem as if they each have their own style. One photo isn’t like another. Some are with wide angle lenses, others with normal lenses, others black and white and others colour. He plays with shadows, with light, with contrast, with focal points, he does portraits, he gets close and he shoots from afar. He is experimenting, searching, looking for new perspectives and new compositions. We like how he isn’t afraid to show all of his work, how he mixes things up, how he doesn’t mind to show a b&w portrait next to a colour street scene with heavy shadows. He clearly photographs because he loves it and he shoots for the moment.
