Pedro Armestre

Pedro Armestre

1972 (A Rasela, Verín) Ourense.

His career started in 1993 with his images swinging towards photojournalism, which he used with success for the Europa Press agency, the Cover agency, the daily newspaper El Mundo and magazines such as XI Semanal, and Interviu amongst others.  Between the years 2003 and 2016 the international agency France Presse distributed his work to prestigious newspapers and magazines throughout the world.

In 2014 he formed the audiovisual production company Calamar2 specializing in social and environmental content.  In 2015 www.armestregallery.com is born, where numbered limited edition copies of some of his body of work can be obtained.

Throughout his career his photography exhibits a sensitizing character that is a result of its relationship with the defence of human rights, and the care and preservation of the environment.  His journey, clearly marked out leads him to maintain intense relationships with organizations dedicated to these spheres, and to this end he has carried out multiple photographic projects and creative developments.

“Four Elements. The Basic Principles of Life” is Pedro Armestre’s most personal project.  He discovers through his own personal lens the interaction of man with the environment, within which man has wrought changes to the landscape and in many cases brings about an imbalance that endangers life itself.

He has received many varied awards and prizes, amongst them stand out the Premio Rey de España for photojournalism, Pictures of the Year POYi, Premio Ortega y Gasset,  Manos Unidos Premio Nacional for journalism, Pictures of the Year Poy Latan, etc. He has edited three books of his own photographs and has held numerous exhibitions of his own work and participated in many collective exhibitions.
