On the Spot: Edwin S Freyer

by Chiara Costantino

Edwin S. Freyer was born in Las Palmas GC (Spain) in 1985. He took a degree in Photography Studies at the Gran Canaria School of Art and attended to several courses with different artists. His art encompasses both commercial works, mainly fashion and portraits, and personal works, such as Sôlus (2009 – 2010) and Behind the Mask (2011). This last one has been exhibited at the FotoNoviembre 2011 International Biennal Exhibition. Moreover, he has taken part in numerous editorial projects and currently he is the Creative Director in Singular Art Magazine. His photography especially stands out in black and white, where he can be defined as having a great deal of care over aesthetics, and where balance and elegance are paramount. His aim is the human being in two senses: not only in searching for beauty, but also personality and human identity.

Edwin S Freyer è nato a Las Palmas GC (Spagna) nel 1985. Ha conseguito una laurea in Studi fotografici alla Scuola d’Arte Gran Canaria e frequentato diversi corsi con svariati artisti. La sua arte abbraccia sia lavori commerciali, principalmente di moda e ritratti, e lavori personali, come Sôlus (2009 – 2010) e Behind the Mask (2011). Quest’ultimo è stato esibito alla FotoNoviembre 2011 International Biennal Exhibition. Inoltre, ha preso parte a molti progetti editoriali e attualmente è direttore creativo presso Singular Art Magazine. La sua fotografia spicca specialmente per il bianco e nero, per cui può essere definita come ricca di attenzione per l’estetica, qualcosa in cui equilibrio e eleganza sono predominanti. Il suo scopo è l’essere umano in due sensi: non solo la ricerca della bellezza, ma anche della personalità e dell’identità umana.

  1. Wow. The reactions induced in me by these pics were powerful. The faces, the shadows and shadowing, the colors, the age ranges and different bodies, the scenes conveying sadness, worry, alone-ness, even fulfillment, were capturing. I kept looking and staying in the picture. They told me stories, and captured a lot of humanity and personal, intimate details. It was great. Thank you. Randy
