Thrilled to announce our winning participation to the 2015 edition of the The Face Award, contest which recognise some of the best portraits. We are happy to be included in this selection.

The “Watchmakers” series about some of the people behind some of the greatest luxury watches was realised for the magazine Tiempo de Relojes.
Having the opportunity to portrait such interesting people was a revealing experience. Besides the short time allowed to photographs, the flexibility and trust from the editorial staff helped greatly in producing intimate portraits.

Definitively worth checking the other winning images at
