Mariano Belmar Torrecilla, Spain

2021 Sony World Photography Awards - Category Winner, Lifestyle, Open Competition


From a young age, Mariano has been attracted to painting as a means of expression, but life took him to a different path. Photography is, for him, a fun adventure he spends too many hours on. In reality, Mariano is a painter who cannot draw and who finds the camera to be an excellent substitute for brushes. He is extremely interested in composition but even more in light and how to model with it. Mariano Belmar Torrecilla is an autodidact . He won Discovery of the Year at the IPA 2017 and is the winner of the Lifestyle category of the Sony World Photography Awards 2021 Open competition.
