I have introduced myself as ‘Gorka’ many times in the last few years but if you want to google me, you should look for ‘Gorkinha’ or ‘Gorkacophoto’. I ‘m a photographer.
After two years taking photographs of the streets, I realized that I wanted to take pictures of people. I took a turn in my career and, by chance, I started making erotic portraits. It isn’t my main line of work, but it is indeed a discipline that I like a lot and allows me to meet open-minded people who keep shocking me with their ideas and ways of life.
If I had to say what my influences are, I wouldn’t finish ever, but I shall say that I love classics such as Helmut Newton or Richard Avedon, and other underground artists such as Jonathan Leder, Richard Kern or Harri Peccinotti, to name some and not forgetting this century’s genius: Erwin Olaf.
