Toni Amengual

Mallorca, 1980
After graduating in Biology at Barcelona University (2003) and finished my photo studies at IEFC (2000-2002) and a masters in photojournalism (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona 2003) I decided to devote my life to the study of the most complex specie on the planet and to which I belong to: Homo sapiens sapiens. Photography became the perfect tool for my investigations. Since then I have worked as an independent photographer and conceptual artists focused on human beings and their interactions with the world. Trying to understand the complexity of being human. 
 
If I have to define my job I would say that I am a VISUAL ACTIVIST.
