In this feature we like to introduce to you the work and person of Francisco Alvarado León, who is a professional photographer, working in documental, landscape, portrait and air photography.
“My poetry is not expressed in words, but rather, in images” are the words of photographer Francisco, born in 1983 in Ambato, Ecuador in the south of Quito, Ecuadors capital, where he is living and working today.
Francisco describes himself as a hunter of images, searching for the majesty of light and the
presence of beautiful composition, and in that moment, when everything comes together just right, it is all written with a click. It sounds so easy, but if you look at Franciscos photos, you might guess, how much experience you need, to capture these photos with just a click.
Although he is continuously learning and practicing the newest techniques in digital photography, Francisco prefers analog photography, because of the romance, which analog photography embodies. He truly believes, that good photography is not produced on a computer, but rather in a precise
moment in time. Photography is an art of time, light and composition and Francisco tries to limit digital editing and modification, since the merit and beauty resides in capturing the magic of the moment.
