Anna Devís and Daniel Rueda are two imaginative Spanish photographers, both born in 1990. They met at the Universitat Politècnica de València, where they both graduated from the School of Architecture. Today, this creative duo puts to use their architectural backgrounds to tell stories through fun and surprising images that are far from conventional architecture photography. Their particular style is characterized by their visual sense of humor, creativity, precision and a delicate aesthetic inspired by the city, geometry, and minimalism.
By combining their spatial awareness and their artistic vision, primarily based on simple shapes and bold patterns, they have succeeded in establishing magnetic and joyful narratives that smartly suggest both the nature of human relations and the fascination with the urban environment.
Although it may seem surprising or hard to believe, Anna and Daniel create these surreal scenes without the use of photo editing software. Instead, they carefully set the scene in real life using all sorts of everyday objects, unexpected locations and tons of natural light.
