The Tenerife Auditorium was designed by the famous architect Santiago Calatrava and is located by the sea in the city of Santa Cruz de Tenerife. It has a beak with a large overhang that makes it recognizable from a distance. It basically has a large Symphony Hall, with a ceiling with metal panels that allow for sound control, and a smaller Chamber Hall. It is a building in which utility and aesthetics are mixed, giving rise to a structure of great beauty

I am a photographer based in Tenerife (Canary Islands, Spain). I specially like taking pictures of architecture and portraits. I started taking photographs in 2004, and during the past years I have dedicated myself to perfecting my training in Photography and treatment of images with Photoshop. I have made several individual exhibitions, basically of architectural elements, portraits and travel photography. I have traveled taking photos throughout most of the European continent. Last year I made a trip to Cambodia where I was able to develop a project to photograph its smiling inhabitants.
