PHOTO  .  February 7th, 2013

Interview of Lúa Ocaña – photographer born in Vigo (Galicia, Spain) in 1982.


Where would you like to go to take a picture right now ?

If I could choose I would to be in Iceland, lost somewhere on that island.

What is your equipement ?

I always carry in my bag two cameras and several films.
An Olympus OM-1 and Olympus Superzoom 140S, both are analog cameras. The first reflex, the second compact.

You like birds, don’t you ?

Yes, a lot. I see more to the sky that to the ground.
The birds mark the course of my life.. when I find them I’m extremely happy.

How did you get into photography ?

My interest in photography started seven years ago however the truth is that I don’t always realize initially when something is becoming important in my life, but photography has become one of these important things. In Barcelona I combined my studies at the Institute of Photographic Studies of Catalonia – IEFC (Spain), with my predisposition for self-taught learning, prioritizing my own experience and being “behind the camera”.

Give us a sound you like to ear.

The fire of a wood fire.

What are your current projects ?

The next few months I will have some of my photographs in two art fairs, in February in “AAF BRUSSELS 2013” (Belgium) and in March in “ART KARLSRUHE” (Germany).. I hope it goes well with that!
I am also working on my project shared “La memoria del papel“, hopefully in a month is more advanced..
A few months ago I started a project breaking photographs (flickr.com/photos/aladeriva/sets/72157631732585285), and some other things ..
And my photos, always, every week, photos.

What are you going to do just after answered this last question ?

I do not know that I will.. but I should to do the laundry.

Thanks Lùa :)
