Interview with Carlos Sanchez Pereyra

Interviews

29 January 2016

Posted by Anna Fraser

Hi Carlos! Tell us about yourself in two sentences - who are you?

I am a very critical person and that makes me a pessimist, apparently. Saramago used to say: 'The only people interested in changing the world are pessimists, because optimists are delighted with what they have'.

QWhat's the weirdest situation you've found yourself in while taking a photograph?

A When somebody was a putting a pistol to my forehead, while I was taking a photo of a landscape near Mexico City. The photo wasn't anything special. I was just a victim of corruption and violence, issues which scourge that country. In the end, he just took my camera's memory card.

QWhat's your favourite thing to shoot?

AI have been traveling around different European countries for 9 years. Cities, small villages, parks… I love places full of character, like the Raval in Barcelona, Lavapies in Madrid, and the character of Lisbon in general. I also like deserted places, like Baja California and Sonora in Mexico, or Lanzarote in the Canary Islands. Those are my favourite corners of the earth.

QWhat's your number one tip for an aspiring photographer?

ABe sincere with what you consider original. Simplicity of language is the natural result of conversing with yourself.

Of all my photos on Picfair, this is my favourite. Venice's Carnival has been turned in to a party of tourists taking photos. The idea that all of us are photographers has weake... Read more

Of all my photos on Picfair, this is my favourite. Venice's Carnival has been turned in to a party of tourists taking photos. The idea that all of us are photographers has weakened cultural affairs. In fact, this event creates a lot of interest, just for the purpose of taking photos. I feel sorry for that. The photo I selected was of a model who was taking a rest after having posed for many tourists with cameras in their hands. When I saw that, I also took a rest. It was also a moment of peace for me. Tourism and tourists are altering the soul of the cities. I don't like that destiny. Read less

This picture was taken at Barceloneta (the beach in Barcelona) in summer... at sunset. I arranged the elements to make a great picture.

This is Chile House. It's a building in the port of Hamburg, one that any photographer would love to shoot. With this picture I just wanted to play with the patterned windows.

I can't claim sole credit for the success of this photo. The architecture of this building in Lyon was a beatuiful subject. I used B&W to try to eliminate any notion of reality.

This is a Castellers. It's a tradition of Catalonia. Very high towers made with… humans. This image focuses on the detail of the foundations of the tower. The energy is total.

Hamburg. Rain and some gulls trying to steal my breakfast. I bought a fish in a market that opened at six o'clock every Sunday.
