He has a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Seville and a Master’s Degree of Photography from the EFTI School in Madrid.
Juan Carlos Martínez's photographs construct a space where the gaze works in a singular way. Subjected to a model of furtive capture, and sometimes directly voyeuristic, their nature is very far from an improvised snapshot. In this sense, the artist plays with those diffuse limits of the representable and with the even more controversial issue of the confines of one's own look in relation to the intimacy of others.
Juan Carlos Martínez has received numerous scholarships and prizes, among which the First Prize ABC of Art in its IX edition and the Residence of the College of Spain in Paris and in the Academy of Rome stand out. His work has been shown in spaces such as the Centro de Arte y Naturaleza (CDAN) in Huesca; La Casa Encendida, Madrid; Circulo de Bellas Artes, Madrid; Museo ABC de dibujo, Madrid; Museo de América, Madrid; Centro de la Imagen, Mexico City, among others.
