Born in Madrid but drawn to Manchester, where he now lives, Guille Ibanez is a photographer whose work focuses on culture, tradition and human interaction. Originally trained as a cinematographer, he still combines professional film and video work with his passion for photography. The tension between the moving and the still image goes to the heart of Guille’s work, and his pictures are often referred to as being like frames from a film.
Early in his career he realised that photography was about more than just capturing isolated moments and that the real power of the camera was as a means of exploring human behavior and stories and as a tool to connect and interact with the world and the people around him.
Guille develops long term projects mostly in his home country of Spain, but he also works within the UK and Asia. Religion and human faith play a major part in his work which has been awarded at many festivals both nationally and internationally.
