On 11 and 12 June, the Skateshop Lobby in Hamburg showcases photographs by Julian Furones under the title Triangle Walks.
Fellow street photographer Matt Stuart once humorously described Julian Furones with the words, “He likes to photograph people with plastic-bags on their heads.” While the invitation poster for the two-day pop-up exhibition really does show a woman with that exact head-dress, Triangle Walks goes a long way beyond improvised rain covers.
Comprising 20 black and white photographs, the exhibition showcases street photography and spontaneous snapshots by Julian Furones. Born 1984 in the Spanish city of Leon, Furones dropped out of school and moved to Barcelona at 17. He worked as a pizza chef while dedicating his free time to skateboarding. It was not long before several suppliers of skating gear became aware of him, resulting in his first sponsorship contract. He quit his job and spent the next ten years travelling from one event to another on behalf of skate-wear companies.
In LFI 4/2016 (!My! Lens), Furones explains why he favours shooting with the analogue Leica CL. For further details on the exhibition go to Facebook.
