Walking around, tokio & kioto 2010
Samantha Font-Sala


a diary made of photographie, trying to find out and understand through signs, colors, structures, ... through traces of life.

It took a while to understand that my main obession was collecting forms, documenting lines and colors.

I do not like to any show off, i am more spontanous, trying to catch the right thing at the right moment. Keeping up my curiosity in small details.

My pictures are almost all in color. I guess i love colors. I also feel attracted to forms repeating themselves, creating special rythms,
let´s say i take pictures of what seems beautiful to me.
