Xavier Minguella



I am photographer, I got my Photography degree in 1995 (Ecole de Photographie et de techniques visuelles - Ville de Bruxelles, Belgium). My passion is photojournalism so I started working in a small magazine in Brussels, then I got a photo store where I learned everything in the area as professional, even black & white lab. I came back at the end of 2003 to my natal Catalonia and I'm working since 2005 in a small journal in Lleida. I like fashion, portraiture, landscapes, nudes, sports, here you can see most of I do.

HARMONIA, the chorus

Published October 7th, 2011

I started showing small stories through the portfolio, small stories in rural places, maybe it is not as "nice" as a repotage made in India or Africa, but the people who is living around me, around my village are as interesting as other from other places, maybe not for an editors choice but it doesn't matter, I show what I want with the same perspective as if I was "in the third world", well, you can see it in "HARMONIA, the Chorus", a chorus of a small village in Catalonia, old retired people, singing in every event they can... I hope you like it.
