Capturing Moments with Julie Alvarez

August 3, 2011

When I was a kid, I remember watching people taking pictures (you know, normal people like you and me, both with automatic and manual cameras) and thinking that there were two kinds of them: the ones who wanted to capture the moment and wouldn’t care for the quality of the photo, and the ones who wanted to make a “good picture” and somehow kept missing the real moment. But at the same time I remember thinking that both of them were trying to create something that launched both a memory and a feeling. A reaction.

And then… then I grew up to think that I am a bit of both.

I am in love with visual arts, and studied cinema (although later I found that music and still photography were more “immediate” for me to express myself). I love photography, I just can’t help it. But also, a shift took place inside me over the years (and is still developing): I changed my old desire to capture an image alone or a moment alone, for what feels like an automatic desire to blend them both in one. And that is how I feel every time I capture a moment: I feel it and I see it.

    Your photos are so full of movement and vitality. I can live the moments with you. I think my favorite of the set is very last one, all the hands kneading the dough together.

    that’s how i feel. a bunch of times i’ve been told that taking pictures of your life isn’t any interesting for anybody, but i feel just the opposite. I try to catch moments, feelings, to remember and to share with others. That is what i love! Some people see it, some other don’t, but the thing is to express what is in your inside. :)
