Alexandre Díaz Lorenzo, freelance photographer from Tijarafe on the island of La Palma. Maybe by fate, maybe because it was meant to be, losing my job in 2012, a job that I liked and that for years had filled my life, was an opportunity to try to turn my passion into my profession, who wouldn't want that? ..., and that's how my new challenge began. For this I decided to enter the "Escuela de Arte y Diseño Superior Manolo Blahnik" in Santa Cruz de La Palma, with the aim of developing and deepening my self-taught knowledge with official photography studies. The school gives me the opportunity not only to continue learning, but also to share with colleagues who are advancing as I am in this world and with professionals, who share their experience and trajectory with us. I understand photography as a way of personal expression, a way of transmitting feelings and sensations, images that teach us and speak to us. I want to share my moments with you, to transport you to other places, to show from another point of view every event in the world that surrounds us?
