Jose Luis Gambande, enjoys working in digital monochrome, treating each black and white photograph like a unique thing–a unique opportunity to make each image something special.
He also loves the discovery process on the streets of cities and during post-processing of this images, stating that — “Frequently, when I begin processing an image taking off colors I discover a new shadow, a new light, a new bright that was never seen when taking the photo.”
Jose Luis Gambande was born in Argentina 58 years ago. “I am an electrical engineering and work as that for my living,” says Jose, who is married and has two sons. He recalls how,in his childhood he studied fine arts and enjoyed painting–first, with brushes and paints and lastly digital painting using inkscape software.
As Jose says of his image making philosophy– “By the way, my knowledge of photography techniques is yet very limited. I like to take a good shot (with a good composition) and then make some digital operations (as little as possible) turning the image to a higher level of complexity and impact. I use an image editor. I don’t like to give a “message” with my photos, only an aesthetical representation, and maybe discover a new thing or a new view in a well-known place.”
