Description of the art work
A port, the sea and an ice cream. Experiences that since our childhood we associate with happiness and the summer, and that they fusion in the photographic serie “La Mar de Helados” by Nando Esteva: an invitation to recreate yourself in that simple, and so magical- moment- where those three elements converge.
Nando Esteva, inspired by an ice-cream menu, has worked with hand-made creations, with the added difficulty that implies a material such as ice, and has chosen soften colors for the backgrounds that inspire the summer breeze.
Marine symbols such as an anchor, an old cord buoy, a Nautical chart, o a paper boat are the thread of this image collection.
Nando Esteva (Palma de Mallorca, 1979) is a photographer with a wide professional experience in the publishing world, specialized in gastronomy, architecture and industrial products.
His work in photo-advertising, as well as his personal artistic projects have been distinguished during the last years at the international prizes LUX, IPA, One Eyeland, Florencia-Shanghái, Prix de la Photographie de Paris Px3 and Hasselblad Master Awards.
His art work is rule-breaking and highly original, that characterize by definition and expression.
