David Arribas ( Spain. 1978)



Freelance and Documentary 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 me. 

 I studied photography in Madrid from 2010 to 2015. I learnt a lot in different workshops and courses related to this branch of photography with photographers such as Antonio Heredia,  Manu Brabo , Susana Girón and Antoine d´Agata.

I continued studying self-taught photography and attending courses and seminars.  At the moment, I  dedicate myself to the accomplishment of photographic works of long route related to social projects and  human character.
