Andoni Beristain is a Basque photographer born in a small village in Northern Spain in 1989. Since he was a kid, he’s been fascinated with shapes, colours, observing the world and fitting (or not) in it. He now lives between San Sebastian and Barcelona; his roots are essential to understanding his aesthetics.
For the last eight years, he’s worked for brands like Kenzo, Louis Vuitton, Braun and Adobe, among many others, and he’s been featured in international magazines and exhibitions. He has also found a way to explain his stories, life-changing events, political stands and worries through his photography, combining big-scale outdoors still life and carefully curated studio work.
He started his artistic journey with Pieza Redonda (Round Piece), which spoke about weight, obesity and the social pressure around size. He continued with Pieza Rota (Broken Piece) with disease, cancer and stigma as central issues, and Pieza Madre (Mother Piece), a homage to unconditional love, loss and death. Topics might be dark, but his outlook on life is colourful, bold and optimistic.
Stories can be told in many ways. For Andoni Beristain, it’s all about finding a connection with whoever is looking at his creations, making people wonder, look beyond and, above all, appreciate the good things we take for granted.
