Juan Rodriguez, born in La Coruña in 1960. Starts the camera activity with 16 years old, at the same time with the studie of Architecture. 
 From 1984, the picture becomes his only occupation. Specialized in architectural photography, held many professional works in the area of fashion, advertising and documentary photography.

His work takes him to places as Galiza, Italy, Greece, France, Netherlands, USA, Nepal, Thailand, Finland, Russia, Japan, Egypt or Patagonia. 

In his work, not only is natural light is present, as well as the light emanating from the objects themselves. His photos are more than a portrait of place, but a place that speaks and floods the image making an actual purchase a latent presence. Images of the dark, as shown in a mysterious world that manifests itself, a manifestation of the occult. sites with shadows are his favorites. Shadows and absences, in a perpetual game of what has been or will be. Common places like; streets, sidewalks and street corners, are visited by the photographer and converted into a new universe, in a new reality.
