Tony Remartinez ( Tonyrg) who is based in Sitges, Spain, has been photographing for a long time, having learned photography autodidactically. Only in the last few years has he begun to express what he calls his unrealities, his deconstruction of reality.

In Tony´s images he shows his vision of the reality that surrounds him. When he goes out on photo walks, he thinks about what he could do or with what other image he could merge a particular scene, imagining what to combine. Faced with a single reality or a beautiful image, he transforms that image into an unreality, something he imagines either when taking the picture, or that occurs to him afterwards during the editing process on his iPad.

Tony does not use any of the well-known big name editing software.
Instead, he goes with the flow, turning each image into the work of art it needs to be, in his mind, working almost like a painter, literally using his fingers on the screen of his iPad.
Conceptually, Tony always asks himself what the person in an image may be thinking, where they may be going, what they are doing, etc. What we like so much about Tony´s photos, apart from their impressionist feel, is that when looking at these images, we can make up our own stories, and perhaps get lost a bit in dreams of otherworldly places.

He has exhibited in the Sala Estudi Vidal in Sitges, an individual exhibition, with 40 images, in different formats and sizes, and also in the Sala 106galeria, in Barcelona.
