Bruno Postigo’s camera lens is best described as an extension of his hand - he captures a moment like a hand catching a falling object. He won't let it fall and he won't let it go. His photographs are minimal and cinematic. They strive to convey a meaning; a narrative and the passing of time.
Postigo entered his first darkroom at the age of sixteen, falling in love with the medium as he developed his first black and white prints.
An autodidact, Postigo started shooting without any pretext. With the help of Pakmode Media, he was able to garner experience that quickly developed his craft. Photography has become Postigo’s primary mode of expression.
Where some photographers rely heavily on editing and post production, Postigo, instead manages to mold light in a way that post work becomes very minimal. Like a shadow, he will quickly move and photograph his subjects without them noticing. Artists such as Daido Moriyama, Sebastião Salgado, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and Stanley Kubrick are his artistic mentors.
Postigo has worked with a range of subjects all over the world, and in many different facets of photography and art industries. He has photographed portraits of musicians Skrillex, and Gesaffelstein that have been published internationally.
His editorial work is also extensive and has been featured in magazines such as Rolling Stone, SPIN, Elle France, Magnetik Magazine, Resident Advisor. Postigo has also worked with commercial brands such as Google, General Motors, Disco Donnie, React, Red Bull, Cars.com.
Postigo’s creative work is most impressive, revealing an artist on the threshold of his talent. His Apus series shot in Peru and MX shot in Mexico City are among the many works that evince just how far Postigo will go to get the perfect photograph. Postigo believes that a photographer should push the confines of their comfort zone, always eager to point his camera lens in the direction of new, and altogether foreign genres. In the coming years, Postigo plans to continue his international trips to create more series that showcase the world he sees through his eyes. His work is his world, and the world in which his photographs exist will surreptitiously, and spontaneously become yours in one glance.
