Granada | el Niño de las Almendras

Posted: April 4th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: dougKIM photography, Film, Flamenco, Leica, Spain

The great el Niño de las Almendras or Jose Ferrer or Pepe in the Albaicyn. I had seen him the night before, performing at El Chien Andalou and here he was the next morning, dressed immaculately, greeting all of the neighborhood.

The girls I was hanging out with at the time called out to him, “Hola, Pepe!” They had no idea he was a singer, and a ferocious one at that. A living legend.

    Hi, I like your photographs, they always feel really close to the subject, as well the fact you stick with one camera, one lens and one film. Keep up the good work :D

    Thanks, Sebastian. Yes, I learned a while ago to keep things simple. If I bring two bodies and seven lenses, I try to use everything.

    Hey Doug, love this pic of our neighbour and friend Pepe. He remembered you and would love to send him this pic. I can just imagine you two having coffee together; him with no English and your Spanish :)
