Photography & Art Direction


Andoni Beristain es un fotógrafo nacido en Zumárraga (Guipúzcoa) en 1989. Desde pequeño le fascinaron las formas, los colores, observar el mundo y la idea de encajar (o no) en él. Ahora vive entre San Sebastián y Barcelona; sus raíces son esenciales para entender su estética.

Durante los últimos ocho años, ha trabajado para marcas como Kenzo, Louis Vuitton, Braun y Adobe entre muchas otras, y ha aparecido en revistas y exposiciones internacionales. Por otro lado, Andoni ha encontrado una manera de explicar sus historias, los eventos que han cambiado su vida, sus posturas políticas y preocupaciones a través de su fotografía, que combina bodegones al aire libre y a gran escala con trabajo de estudio cuidado al detalle.

Inició su andadura artística con Pieza Redonda, que hablaba sobre el peso, la obesidad y la presión social en torno a la talla. Continuó con Pieza Rota, con la enfermedad, el cáncer y el estigma como temas centrales. Después llegó Pieza Madre, un homenaje al amor incondicional, la pérdida y la muerte. Los temas de Andoni pueden resultar oscuros, pero su visión de la vida es colorida, audaz y optimista.

Las historias se pueden contar de muchas maneras. Para Andoni Beristain, se trata de encontrar una conexión con quien mira sus creaciones, hacer que la gente se cuestione, mire más allá y, sobre todo, aprecie las cosas buenas que damos por sentadas.

Andoni Beristain is a Basque photographer born in a small village in Northern Spain in 1989. Since he was a kid, he’s been fascinated with shapes, colours, observing the world and fitting (or not) in it. He now lives between San Sebastian and Barcelona; his roots are essential to understanding his aesthetics.

For the last eight years, he’s worked for brands like Kenzo, Louis Vuitton, Braun and Adobe, among many others, and he’s been featured in international magazines and exhibitions. He has also found a way to explain his stories, life-changing events, political stands and worries through his photography, combining big-scale outdoors still life and carefully curated studio work.

He started his artistic journey with Pieza Redonda (Round Piece), which spoke about weight, obesity and the social pressure around size. He continued with Pieza Rota (Broken Piece) with disease, cancer and stigma as central issues, and Pieza Madre (Mother Piece), a homage to unconditional love, loss and death. Topics might be dark, but his outlook on life is colourful, bold and optimistic.

Stories can be told in many ways. For Andoni Beristain, it’s all about finding a connection with whoever is looking at his creations, making people wonder, look beyond and, above all, appreciate the good things we take for granted.
