Description I was arranging some old boxes when I found this tank, an 'MBT Ariete' from Italian army. I had an idea regarding tanks and firecrackers for a long time so I decided to make it true. The original idea was shoot the tank with a big explosion behind, but the blast was really big, the sand was flying all around.
Marc Garrido, Barcelona Member Since February 2009 Artist Statement When I was Young, after begging a lot, my parents bought me my first camera. I did a lot of photograph: at home, on holydays, playing with my friends… anytime was a good time to shoot. However, it was a relief for parents' economy that I left the camera almost forgotten.
With the arrival of digital cameras I get back to my hobby, but wasn't till I get my current job that I do start seriously with photography. My job requires me to travel far and wide, and of course I could not leave the camera at home.
All started with some Sydney photographs done by a partner. After seeing the results achieved with a good camera and a wide angle lens I couldn't resist to buy my first DSLR. Then came hours and hours reading about photography, more hours of practice, purchase of photographic equipment and back to the reading. So far I still have a terrible desire to continue learning and enjoying this wonderful art.
After some years behind the camera I think that I'm qualified to say that what really excites me is studio photography, especially still live compositions and always with a very personal standpoint.
