Artist: Chris Tadeo
I was born and bred in Gran Canaria (Canary Islands) in 1989. From 2007 to 2012, I studied Translation and Interpreting, during this time I spent a one-year-long stay in Geneva where I commenced shooting. Moving back home in 2013, I decided to take photography seriously and I started experimenting with formulas that where absolutely uknown for me. After a few years of tough work I could finally learn the best possible lesson: “mistakes are just a necessary step towards learning and mastering them is just the path”.
For a time, I stopped taking photos and I just focused on studying photography by myself (photobooks meeting, workshops) just to get to know my truly self. Early 2015 I decided to move a step forward in my art carreer by applying for the Art Residence Progamme at La Regenta Visual Arts Centre, where I started creating the present project I am presenting today.
