Interview with photographer Marc Llach

About you:
I was born in 1981 and I’m from Girona, Spain. I’m a freelance photographer specialised in architecture and interior design.
After to study photography at ITES in Barcelona and specialized in architecture and interior design at the Institut d’Estudis Fotogràfics de Catalunya (IEFC) I’ve worked for several architectural studies in Catalunya and Andorra.
Concurrently to my professional assignments I’m also doing personal projects which want to think about urban landscapes like a subject.

What is it that attracts you the most of what you have around you?
I’m really interested in contemporary landscapes and what we can learn trough them.

Tell us about your experience as a photographer what did it give you?
The photography gives me the skill of watching the world in a deeper way.

Three adjectives to describe yourself.
Rebellious, sensitive and quite disorganized.

A film, a book and a song.
Carlito’s Way by Brian De Palma.
Aztec by Gary Jennings.
Killing in the name by Rage Against The Machine.

What camera do you use? What lens?
I have a Canon 5D Mark II with a Sigma 24-70mm. However, I bought a large-format camera a few months ago. It’s a Graflex Speed Graphic and I hope to use it in the future.

Tell about exhibition if you have had any.
I have had a solo exhibition in a gallery in Blanes last December. This coast village is my home town and it was great to share my works there with my family and best friends.    

Do you sell prints? How do you make it and where can someone buy?
Yes, I do. You will be able to find some of my last works in Redbird Editions. This platform located in Amsterdam does the promotion of emerging photographers, who are from all over the world. And if you are interested in others works feel free to get in touch with me through my email contact which you can find in my website.

Favourite photographer.
One of my favourite photographers is Jordi Bernadó who is an architectural photographer from Barcelona because his personal work is very clever and funny.

Describe some of your projects.
At the moment I am working on a series about the tourist landscape. These landscapes are the result of a bipolar situation—in summer they are visited by loads of people, but are desolate come winter. This mad reality produces some weird and surreal landscapes which results in serious urban and social consequences on the territory where they lay. My intention is to understand and capture them.

Your main concept.
The way our contemporary landscapes define and produce us.

Which advice would you give someone who wants to become a (professional) photographer?
Follow your instinct, work hard and be patient. And the most important thing: be honest.  

Do you work as photographer?
Yes, I do. I usually work with architectural studies and I also do other professional photographic assignments.

Your plans.

Shooting photographs and making projects until my last day!
