FILMMAKER BY DAY, ARTIST BY NIGHT
"Juan Javier has always been obsessed with the connection of the beauty of the eyes and the soul. He searches for the connection of all the elements that resemble a spiritual world and the magic that is captured with his camera.
His photographic work is based in different and parallel cultures. Portraying how diverse and similar we are as human beings. He studied cinematography and in the middle got involved in psychology and anthropology that became part of his storytelling background."
“Every time I travel. I learn how small is the world. How similar we are as humans. I get in touch with a lot of beauty and greatness. I also understand that all the intercultural conflicts are based on prejudice, lack of empathy and fear of the unknown. Photography has the ability to portray both sides at the same time.”
- Juan Javier Ibarra Pitts.
"...La fotografía de Juan Javier Ibarra (...) representa lo sublime del alma, en un retrato nos desafía, dejando de lado la sutileza, impulsándonos con severidad a conocer estos personajes, momentos y emociones reales, impregnados en una fotografía..."
