Story
Tagline
www.intifotografie.com The journey that led to the creation of these pages, took a long time, beginning in the late 90’s. Whilst taking a trip through Latin America by motorbike, discovering beautiful landscapes provided by mother earth. Through many days and nights soaking up the star filled skies shining on the Apus Mountains, the rainforests and the deserts, all these emotional experiences, triggered the grain of an idea to do something to capture the images. I started by photographing the sights I saw there, and then later came to Europe to study further. I discovered mixing photography and painting light, techniques that when combined, heightened my passion for nature (mother earth). I set out to combine them and find some way to use them in my life. Inti is the sun god in the Incan culture (“supreme god of light”). I lived in Cusco, Peru for many years, where I became close to mother earth, the universe and the human soul, I learned a well known saying; “I wish you much light”. It is a good luck wish used between friends in particular. From these experiences and this saying in particular, what better name for my project than Inti? These pages represent a small tribute to the beautiful Incan culture and to those many dear friends I met in Cusco, from deep in my heart. For now I have started with my recent experiments in images and light and in future I will add photographs form that beautiful part of my life, there in Cusco. I hope you enjoy my humble page that is made with passion and good energy, thank you. Para crear esta página, paso mucho tiempo desde el momento que quise dedicarme a la fotografía y todo empezó en los finales de los 90, haciendo un viaje por toda Latinoamérica en moto y descubriendo los hermosos paisajes que me regalo la madre tierra, muchas días y noches disfrutando en pleno, de preciosos cielos, llenos de estrella mágicas, de montañas (Apus), desiertos e intrigantes bosques selváticos, todo esa hermosa experiencia vívida me hizo decidir que tenía que hacer algo, es así que empecé a fotografiar para luego venir a Europa y estudiar, buscando el estilo que me satisfaga y es así que descubrí la fotografía nocturna y el Ligth Painting dos técnicas que hicieron de de mí otra persona, con mas pasión de la usual y me entregué de lleno a esta profesión, combinando las dos en una, la naturaleza (la madre tierra) y la fotografía. Me llamo Inti que significa Dios sol en la cultura de los Inkas, Inti=sol dios supremo de la luz. En Cusco donde viví muchos años ahí aprendí a tener mas contacto con la tierra, con el universo, y con el alma humana, aprendí también a decir una frase que se utiliza mucho en Cusco entre los amigos, al menos mis amigos, te deseo muchas luz…, esa expresión que significa un deseo de buen augurio, reforzó también la idea de llamarme Inti, dios sol, Luz en su totalidad y que mejor nombre para esta profesión que ésta, basada en el manejo de la luz como la fotografía y he aquí un pequeño homenaje a esa hermosa cultura, la Inka, a esos entrañables amigos que conocí en Cusco, Perú, y que son muchos. Aunque en esta página todavía no tengo ninguna foto de esa hermosa parte de mi vida digna de ser mostrada, en el futuro lo haré seguro. Espero disfruten de mi humilde Página que esta hecha con mucha pasión y buena energía, gracias.
Introduction

The journey that led to the creation of these pages, took a long time, beginning in the late 90’s. Whilst taking a trip through Latin America by motorbike, discovering beautiful landscapes provided by mother earth. Through many days and nights soaking up the star filled skies shining on the Apus Mountains, the rainforests and the deserts, all these emotional experiences, triggered the grain of an idea to do something to capture the images. I started by photographing the sights I saw there, and then later came to Europe to study further. I discovered mixing photography and painting light, techniques that when combined, heightened my passion for nature (mother earth). I set out to combine them and find some way to use them in my life.

Inti is the sun god in the Incan culture (“supreme god of light”). I lived in Cusco, Peru for many years, where I became close to mother earth, the universe and the human soul, I learned a well known saying; “I wish you much light”. It is a good luck wish used between friends in particular. From these experiences and this saying in particular, what better name for my project than Inti?

These pages represent a small tribute to the beautiful Incan culture and to those many dear friends I met in Cusco, from deep in my heart.

For now I have started with my recent experiments in images and light and in future I will add photographs form that beautiful part of my life, there in Cusco. I hope you enjoy my humble page that is made with passion and good energy, thank you.
