Photographer and printer

Madrid, 1960

Barrantes's photographic work, structured in series including “Movement”, “Surprise”, “Chillida territory”, “Beyond the Horizon”, “I Am” and “Some day, let's leave”, has been exhibited both in Spain and in several other European countries (Fundacio Miro, Majorca; PARIS PHOTO 2002 et 2004, Paris; World Trade Center, Bremen; the Institute Cervantes, Moscow, and elsewhere) and forms part of both public and private collections, (including the Bibliotheque Nationale de France, Paris; Ordonez-Falcon Collection, San Sebastian; Rafael Tous Collection, Barcelona; Centro Andaluz de la Fotografia, Junta de Andalucia; and so on).

In 1993, Carlos Barrantes set up his own non-industrial photographic workshop. Specialized initially in Platinotype and other historical and alternative photo-chemical processes (salted and albumen paper, carbon printing, cyanotype, gum dichromate, Vandyke and Polaroid transfers), he has recently added the digital Giclée/Digigraphie pigment process in b/w and colour to his technical repertoire. His workshop being located originally in Palma de Majorca (Spain), in 2006 he moved it to Saint-Estève (near Perpignan) in the South of France. In this context, he works for other photographers, plastic artists and institutions in Spain, France and Latin America.

Barrantes also runs photographic workshops at a number of universities and institutions, (such as the École Nationale Supérieure Louis Lumière, Paris, France; the Universidad de Navarra, Pamplona, Spain; the Fundacio Miro, Majorca, Spain; Centre d’Art Bozart, Abidjan, Ivory Coast; among others).
