David Arribas is a documentary and freelance photographer based in Madrid. Spain. Interested in anthropological-social reporting.  I seek to document the life forms of the evironment around me that interest and inspire. I´m studying self-taught photography and attending courses and seminars. I realized several masterclass with different photographers like Antonio Heredia, Manu Brabo, Antoine d´Agata and Crisitna Garcia Rodero.

At the moment, I  dedicate myself to the accomplishment of photographic works of long route related to social projects and  human character.
