IGOR TERMENON

Edinburgh based photographer Igor Termenon was born in Ponferrada, a small town in the north west of Spain.

While studying his bachelor degree in Industrial Engineering he started taking photos of friends and became more and more interested in fashion photography. After a couple of years just taking photos for fun, he decided to dedicate more time to photography and started to shoot editorials for websites and magazines such as Nylon Mexico and Vice.

In 2008, Igor moved to Glasgow to study one year abroad.

The industrial landscape of the city inspired him to start shooting more with film cameras and to develop his personal work. While studying in Glasgow, Igor started to document his daily life with 35mm cameras. That was the beginning of his series “I Used To Live Here”, where he explores the last 4 years of his life and all the places where he has lived during this time.

After going back to Spain to finish his bachelor degree, Igor moves back to the UK to study a master degree in Liverpool. There, he continues to develop his personal work and switches from digital to film to shoot all his fashion editorials.

While studying in Liverpool, Igor starts a collaborative photography project called Girls/Boys on Film. Girl/Boys on Film is a contemporary photography zine showcasing the work of artists which use film as their preferred medium. What started as a simple project to spend some of his free time, has become a growing platform for emerging photographers and has been featured in some important websites and magazines like Urban Outfitters, Dazed Digital, Elle Girl Korea and It’s Nice That.

Igor is a fan of zine culture and independent publications. Every Sunday on his blog, he publishes a section called “Sunday Zine Review” where he reviews some of the best photography and art zines.

Apart from all this, Igor works at a digital marketing agency in Edinburgh, where he’s been living since September last year.
