Biography

kike suayBorn in Valencia in 1976, he came into contact with photography when he was still a teenager. At first it was just a hobby and it was not until he was more than 18 years old when he decided to  develop his skills as a photographer. He did it by following an autodidactic method and by attending courses and seminars given by acclaimed photographers.

At the age of 24, he started a new stage as a professional photographer. Then he set up his own studio, specialized in commercial and publishing photography. After a while, he abandoned this  activity to begin living photography just as a way of expression and in her artistic dimension.

After 9 years of experiences and having developed several projects in different fields of photography, he showed his first exposition, focused in night photography of landscapes. At this stage,  he already used technique as a tool and landscapes as concepts, and both as a way of self-expression.
