David Mirete [@m1r3t3] is a photographer based in Alicante, Spain. After many years living in a big city, David returned to the area where he grew up. The years away gave him a new appreciation for the immense beauty of the area. The landscape and environment were much more attractive than he remembered. This was one of the triggers for him picking up a camera; he needed to use photography to document his surroundings.
“I used to think about the reasons why people use photography. In my case I use photography as an effective way to express and explore my feelings and fears. So for me it’s a therapy, almost a necessity. I love depicting human traces in the photos I take. I mean, you are not going to see people in my photos, but, implicitly, they are. I realised that I feel more comfortable with those human-empty contexts because I find the story in them much more interesting and subtle. Besides these human traces I am quite obsessed with the passage of time and the imperfect beauty resulting of it. I try to build a metaphor that talks about that influence of time in people’s lives, emotions and bodies.” – David Mirete
