Photographer: Bichito

I was born too many years ago in a corner from the European ‘finisterrae’, in the place where, as they say, all the paths end. I grew up in Caracas, a city that smells of rotten fruit. That is my inheritance: the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. Of both I retained the belief that we are aquatic animals and we must accept that the drift is the unique possible destiny, maybe the unique categorical truth. I make photos because I stopped writing. The photos are always an atavic and smaller form of writing. I am an amateur and don’t believe in my ‘ars fotografica’. The photos never bark, the photos never smell, never resonate. The photos are never written words.

    such beautiful words, jose… the images are so powerful… most of which i’m familiar with but i can appreciate them no matter how many times i see them.

    thank you, tom

  2. Josè is one of my favourite talented photographers of all time.
    He is a true artist and his style and composition continue to amaze me.

  3. Bichito’s art is outstanding. I was really impressed by it since the very first time I could see his photos (not very long ago). Reading his words I can confirm now there’s a powerful mind behind his pictures. It could not be another way.
    An incredibly human artist. That’s the only thing I can say now about him.
