Bajando del campo 1 Alpamayo

Jose Bonilla

Photographer and sculptor

Venezuela - Czech Republic

Taking a backpack and walking to achieve proposed goals is my greatest joy, and if I add to this my other passions such as photography and plastic work, I manage to group together a set of qualities that allow me to take intervened photographs of the most beautiful landscapes of my country and the world.

The second creative process comes when I cut the photo, I discover shapes that I had not realized when taking the photo, it is a whole new world to discover and then give relief to the photo to achieve perspective in the finished work
