JULIO MARCHAMALO

Street photographer and sculptor

I was born in Madrid on Book Day in 1994. As a son of writer and journalist parents, I decided to be a rebel and take the scientific path by studying Physics. At the moment I combine a full time job related to science with a passion that was born from photographing objects in a different way with a Samsung smartphone of merely 90 euros and which has now become part of my life. I specialize in street photography, mainly around my hometown, Madrid, without any intervention on the subjects or objects that make up the photograph, because for me the chance of the world that surrounds us is a gift to the eye that knows how to appreciate it. If I am required to summarize my passion into one sentence, that would be: 'Finding beauty on a daily basis'.

Since september 2022 I have been sculpting in clay, and I combine, in my project Tales of Niwa, science fiction stories with figurative sculpture.
