La imagen ganadora en el apartado “President Award” de Ramón Vaquero ha sido la escogida para ilustrar el cartel y flyers de la muestra, en la que también participará.
Cuando hace unos cuantos años empezaba en fotografía, disfrutaba de algunos de los excelentes libros de Graphis donde publican sus trabajos muchos de los fotógrafos que admiro, (Albert Watson, Annie Leibovitz, Herb Ritts, Vallhonrat…).

Y uno de los premios internacionales más prestigiosos.
Mi agradecimiento al equipo de redacción de Graphis por todo el apoyo recibido desde el principio.
