Felipe Caparrós has worked as a freelance photographer for various national magazines on popular Andalusian culture. His sensitivity and way of seeing the folk traditions have been a source of inspiration for painters and publishers in Spain, the UK and the USA. From small he has lived close to the popular Andalusian traditions thanks to his father: the world of bullfighting, flamenco, holy week, and the more traditional trades.

His photographs stand out because they transmit complicity, evoke simplicity, and beautiful memories. Felipe Caparrós is not interested in a bombastic style; he tries to teach the naturalness of a gesture, a scene, an attitude... with an extraordinary technique, in keeping with their own style.
