My name is Pablo Gálvez. I was born in Lima and I have lived in the city of Milan, Italy, for 15 years. At first, it was not so easy to adapt to this country, since everything was new to me: the city, the language, its customs, among other things.

Migrating means something very important. It was to meet again, after 12 years, with my father, and to look for a better future that I am achieving with perseverance and a lot of effort. I currently work as a manager in the warehouse area in a chemical and instruments company for hospitals.

For 7 years I have been dedicated to the photography of events, such as weddings, concerts, photographic books. For me being a photographer that portrays people is a responsibility, a commitment and an art that I am passionate about. Thanks to photography I have had the opportunity to immortalize great national and international singers. Another of my passions is traveling to various places, always with my inseparable camera.

In 2018 I managed to win second place in the photographic contest "I am a Peruvian Migrant" in the professional category. It was a great emotion for me to see my photographs exhibited in various places in Lima.

I still feel nostalgia for having left my country, Peru. I miss riding my bike through its streets, eating a delicious ‘anticucho’ and playing guitar with my friends from the neighborhood.
