Your Bio

rmedina was born in Budapest, Hungary, and grew up in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He came to the USA in 1978, and has been a Tampa, FL resident for over 20 years. His interest in photography dates back to his childhood when he used to play with his mother’s Rolleiflex, and became crystallized in his youth, when he briefly worked as a professional photographer. However, other interests pulled him away from his first love and his interest in photography remained dormant. In the last few years, with the advances in digital photography and image processing, the old flame was rekindled.

Interest in travel and nature has been a constant throughout his life, recently focusing on people wherever he travels, and the local water birds of his home State. He is particularly interested in showing his subjects in their natural environment, trying to extract artistic value of what surrounds us without disturbing it. He says: "I try to show what I see and feel, always looking for the unique contrast of shapes and colors that our natural and man-made surroundings offer, hoping to express something meaningful through the nuances of light and shadow."
