about JA

Around the year 2000 he began to develop his career as a professional photographer.

Juan Aragonés began photography at the age of 15 thanks to the loan of an enlarger and a gift from his parents of a second-hand Minolta reflex. In those first years of photographic discoveries (1993), he began to collaborate with the musical magazine Spiral, and without even reaching the age of majority, he made reports and photos of concerts.

His interest in him and his photographic knowledge gradually expanded around the time he began to study Image and Sound Operations (1995) at the Puerta Bonita center (Madrid). At that time, he discovered the moving image and its endless possibilities, with which he decided to continue training in this field, studying Cinematography and Photography Direction at the TAI center.

Along with these studies, he works as an assistant and camera assistant in shorts, commercials and feature films, to later consolidate his career in the image as a focus puller and later as a camera operator, always without forgetting artistic and musical photography that made him discover his trade.

Around the year 2000 he began to develop his career as a professional photographer, specializing in the musical field that saw him born, taking his first photos.

Since then, he has collaborated with print media such as Serie B Magazine and digital media such as Playground Mag, or radios such as Gladys Palmera, as well as doing work for concert and event promoters such as HeinekenPro (Heineken Arena MAD, SonoramaFest), RockinRio, Sinnamon ( SummerCase Fest.), and record labels such as Warner Dro, EMI, Pías, Love Monk and Universal among others, for which he has done promotional photographic work and covers of their artists, as well as making various video clips and EPKs. In 2010 he was nominated for the Latin Grammys for the video clip of “La Trama Circular” by Jorge Drexler and created the music video platform desubicados.tv in which artists and bands such as Fito Páez, Love of Lesbian, Depedro , Nada Surf, Fuel Fandango and Kevin Johansen among many others.

He is currently focused on artistic photography and in constant search of dimensions outside of it.
