My Modern Shop Spotlight – Jose Ramon Irusta’s Magical Spanish Landscapes

Self-taught photographer Jose Ramon Irusta captures the beautifully magical quality of Spain's coastal landscapes. Through his photography, Irusta is able to preserve the scenic view of Spain's spectacular water flows and seascapes. He tells us, “Water is an element of great artistic plasticity, free of any temporal binding. It is able to catch an ephemeral moment and yet, like no other element, can transmit the sensation of running time. A violent wave hits the coast, the trail of foam in the sand draws into retirement, a misty sea is made more magnificent by long exposure. These things give each picture a magical moment that will never reoccur.”

We're pleased to announce that all of the images featured in this post are now available as prints and canvases through our art store, My Modern Shop.
