At the moment Xavi combines his retouch work with the development of his personal photography projects. His passion for nature got him work around it and took this subject as a main character for his artistic projects.
Exploring technical possibilities of the photography borders and having nature as the main subject, the author tries to get results that make us think about our perception, creating a new point of view of our environment.
