Photographer Focus: Rob Aparicio
It kinda, sorta, almost feels like Spring is here in NYC. And that's why our newest feature photographer's work is so apropos. Rob, hailing from Southern Spain, focuses (literally) on nature - it's loveliness, tranquility, and simple beauty. He often times adds a little somethin' somethin' to his images by using quotes in a ransom-note style that would appeal universally to any lost teenager (and maybe even to a few mid 20-somethings too). His view is clear - just chill, bro. So take a break, and feel free to stare aimlessly at these photos, letting them transport you to a clean, peaceful world far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Check out Rob's work right here, as well as on
Olympus OM 20 (film camera) and my humble camera Canon 1000D.
