Jesús Arenas (Madrid, 1982), based in Barcelona and Madrid, is a relative newcomer to architectural photography.
He enjoys remembering how he was always drawn to the 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.
After finishing his university degree on engineering in UPM (Madrid), 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.
Currently he mostly works for local architectural offices such as Barozzi Veiga, Ramon Sanabria Arquitectes, RCR Arquitectes, etc. and has been published by national magazines like On Diseño, Arquitectura Viva, etc.
Meanwhile, in his free time, he expands his personal works about the urban landscape, always revolving around the ‘survey’ format.
