Madrid 35 mm

Updated: Aug 1

An idea of exploring the city with 35mm lens has been brewing on my mind for a while. It struck me that if there is any place I should start with, it's where I live. In late March I rented a Sigma 35mm lens and booked my staycation in 2 different spots in the city center. First three nights were spent in an AirBnB apartment in Malasaña district, the other 3 nights - in the apartment close to Gran Via. Every early morning and evening I'd get outside to explore the neighborhoods of the awakening city. Explored neighborhoods were Malasaña, La Latina, Plaza de España, Gran Via, Plaza Mayor and Las Letras.

Having only one focal range with me during the whole week challenged me to think out of the box, stepping closer or further away to capture the scene, rather than zooming in and zooming out.

Tools used for the project:
