Sebastian Cueva, Barcelona ES Member Since October 2010 Artist Statement I was born in mid - 1978 in a humble family from Barcelona, Spain. I left my high school studies when I was too young due to a lack of motivation. It was from there when I started studying seriously. Without rhythm, obligation to do so and combining it with my professional and personal life.
In 1998 I started designing websites, I remember that time with humor, there wasn't a settled standard and each browser used to interpret the code as wished. From then until now I've been autodidact, forming myself with courses, seminars and information found on the Internet.
It was in 2008 when I discovered photography by accident: a compact camera came into my hands and it began to steal me time. I still have photos from that time, that I've always liked, but since a year ago I didn't knew why.
After 11 years working as an executive for several companies, I've finally decided that it wasn't what I liked. So in 2009, I bought my first professional camera and since then, there's no day that I don't spend some time on it.
In the last year I've made more than 600 hours of regulated studies related to photography and design. The hours of personal practice by my own initiative are countless, because there's no better motor than illusion.
I hope that you enjoy my photos at least half of what I enjoy doing them.
