José Javier Serrano (Donostia, 1981), aka Yosigo, is a Spanish fine art photographer from San Sebastian. Yosigo describes the creative process behind the series “UDA”, meaning summer in Basque: “My beginnings as a photographer began with a search for spaces in the city where I was born, Donostia. The city and its surroundings are coastal landscapes, so I began to photograph the beaches compulsively.
Throughout my career, between projects, I have always been photographing the same territory, La Concha beach, which is where I started. Always photographing the same space has allowed me to develop and evolve my own language. Initially, I was attracted by the scale, but little by little and as I watched the material, I began to be more interested in the characters and situations, I was looking for the repetition of patterns (for example people reading) and the abstraction within everyday elements. This search led me to want to explore other places but always within the same theme, the beaches, the sea, the sun, in short; the summer, UDA in Basque. I have always felt an interest in tourism as a concept. I couldn't say what attracts me about tourism, I only know that it makes me happy to photograph it. This exhibition is a compilation of these summer vibes from the coasts of Spain.”
