Jesús Arenas Mesa

Jesús Arenas has been drawn to the city and built landscape since a very early age. As a child, he was already interested, in a sensorial way, in the peripheral and the so-called “non-places” long before he knew they were worth research or even photographic essays.

Not by chance, his first photographs portrayed these limits, focusing on the discordant elements and ruptures of the urban fabric, while at the same time discovering the work of those great photographers that had travelled that path before, exploring the topic.

After finishing his engineering studies, he decided to focus on his architectural photography career instead, where all of his interests cross paths: the pleasures and challenges of commissioned work, the artistic possibilities of photography and the permanent contact with the architectural and urban environment.
