*Portfolio_ The Intrusive Eye Of Biel Capllonch

21 Sep

Barcelona based photographer Biel Capllonch , has been shooting images for nearly 15 years.  His body of work is extensive as it is diverse, he has shot campaigns for Ikea as well as covers for LeCool.  A master of composition, his work leaves you questioning what is at the periphery of his lens.  Both intense and shrouded in mystery his images are quietly chaotic and conceptually well restrained with a calm force of candor for his subjects at hand.

When looking at his images one gets the feeling of being an intruder in a world that only Biel has stumbled upon and one which only he knows what really happened that day. Are we voyeurs? Do the subjects know we are watching? Do they like it? Did we get there to late?

 His photography evokes a certain kind of awkward silence; a journey behind closed doors of the suburban, the glamorous and the elite.  It is a study in human emotion, fears, and the peeling back of veils. Nothing is what it seems. Nothing will ever be same.


Barcelona Fashion Week 2009 _ Miriam Ponsa

9 Sep

BCN FASHION WeekBarcelona Fashion Week, drew to a close on Friday, after a week of star studded front rows, gift bags, air kisses, and after-parties. The glitterati turned out in full force to support 080 BCN Fashion Week. After the announcement earlier this year to pack up the now infamous Bread & Butter show, and take it back to Berlin, Fashion junkies were in a desperate need for a quick fix. Picking up where Bread & Butter left off BCN Fashion Week is shaping to be a force to reckon with. With the city supporting it’s latest addition to the international scene, 080 has now become the ugly step sister that’s name is on everybody lips. Taking over Pavilion 8, designers for all over Europe showed at the years fashion week all vying for attention in a market dominated by Madrid. One of the most original Catalan designers that Showed this year was Miriam Ponsa. Showing an incredibly minimal and chic collection, her muted tones and ethereal music reflected her collection simply titled :”Les Trementinaires” Inspired by the traveling healers who wandered Europe in the mid 19th Century, these traveling pharmacies became the way to bring medicinal plants to the far corners of the continent. With mint and lavender placed on the first few rows the smell tinted the air already thick in excitement for the latest of Catalan designers whose work as already permeated Japan, Norway, Italy and Saudi Arabia












In continuing with my coverage of up and coming designers, Miriam will be answering some questions next week about her collection and inspiration. So stay tuned.

After a week of wild parties and the stress of designers vying for the public eye one image seemed to sum up the feeling at yesterdays closing.
