In the newspaper where we work we make a series of reports to prominent people of our environment. We incorporate a photograph in black and white that reflects the personality of the person we choose. A very simple photograph, with a side illumination with a beauty dish and a black background, trying to emphasize to the personage the maximum possible. In this case we have chosen the sculptor Miguel Angel Tapia. He was captured surrounded by his own sculptures, as if he were one of them, as if he were one of his creations. The man who carved himself.
