TPL: Where do you find inspiration? Do you have any favourite artists and photographers? Talk to us about your printing series about your favourite photographers on IGTV.
JMCC: I usually watch many documentaries about iconic photographers of all times, see how their work evolves, how they interact with people, the great travels they undertake to get a photograph, it inspires me ... but ultimately, many of the people I've met relatively recently are friends of mine, they inspire me every day.
My list of favourite photographers is very long, from Graciela Iturbide, Vivian Maier, Isabel Muñoz, Manuel Álvarez, Cartier B, Sebastiao Salgado, Gerda Taro, etc.
My series on IGTV is to make prints of the photographs of my favorite photographers, they are friends of mine who, in addition to my admiration for their work because it is wonderful, have been crucial for my learning. Unfortunately for time reasons I cannot do as many as I would like, but I still have more to be done.
The quarantine gave me the time to learn many things, among them different quite old alternative processes to printing a photograph, which give amazing and special results, because they are unique pieces and no two are alike.
