6 questions about Ibiza
When did you first come to Ibiza? What was your first impression of the island?
The first time I visited Ibiza was in summer 2012, I’m a romantic and I fell in love with an ibicencan girl I met in the university of Palermo while I was studying Fine Arts and she was in Erasmus. When she invited me to visit Ibiza and showed me around I could smell the freedom of this island and I just adored that feeling.
What makes Ibiza so charming for you? What are your links with the island?
For me Ibiza is a place that gives you space to keep being young, wild and true, I feel like this island is full of interesting and unconventional people, I love that. I really feel Ibiza is home for me.
What are your favorite places on the island?
I like Santa Gertrudis a lot, I can’t really say why, I guess again is the kind of people you see around.
How would you describe Ibiza to someone who has never heard of it?
I’m not a party person and I live here, Ibiza is so much more. I like that it is a small place and that the people who live here all year around create small communities, you can see people are helping each other, it’s very easy to make friends. I would describe Ibiza as a tolerant place.
What measures would you propose to preserve the island?
I think I’m not the right person to answer this question, but I guess the most obvious to me is limiting car entrance in the summer season, it’s crazy the amount of vehicles you see in summer, and better public transport should be a must. There are interesting projects that are trying to do something for preserving the Island. For example, what Ibiza Preservation is doing is great, I make photos for them on the Ibiza Produce project, they are trying to push people to consume more local products, and I think it is very beautiful and useful.
What is the most typical restaurant in which you have taken pictures?Usually restaurants don’t pay for images of their food, but I really love taking photos of these kinds of places, they are the most interesting to shoot because they are real, food is messy and not so beautiful, but it tastes great and I like challenges. I took photos at Cas Pages or Celler de Can Pere, both very typical and great.
