After a graduation in oil painting and comic art at the Brussel's Royal Academy of Arts Pedro Correa became fascinated by photography and its capacity to capture the moment, moments that became meaningful in a particular instant and were not manufactured. Fragile moments that he needed to seize and…Show more encapsulate before they floated away.
Clearly influenced by his impressionistic painting background, his style was born by injecting the emotions of impressionism into the "decisive moment" of photography. In other words: shooting with one eye of an impressionistic painter and one eye of an urban image hunter.
Further to that idea, he never modifies elements of a picture, merge different images or ask people to pose: "There is in my opinion no need to force beauty, it is already out there."
His works have been exhibited in galleries of Hong Kong, Washington D.C., New York, Los Angeles, London, Paris and Brussels.Show less
"Formally trained as an oil painter, Correa soon moved towards the medium of photography, taking his impressionistic style with him. He captures beautifully still images, using the camera to frame moments before they're lost forever. Often shooting through glass, or out of focus, his cityscapes have a dreamlike feel, drawing on distant memories and fleeting emotions."
