ALLAN AGAMI  |  PHOTOGRAPHY

ALLAN AGAMI BEGAN DELVING INTO PHOTOGRAPHY WHEN HE TURNED THIRTEEN AND RECEIVED HIS FIRST CAMERA (CANON AE-1). FROM THERE THE PASSION FOR FILM AND DARKROOM PHOTOGRAPHY GREW EXPONENTIALLY.

 

ALTHOUGH ALLAN WAS BORN AND LIVES IN MEXICO, HE HAS SPENT A GOOD EIGHT YEARS LIVING ABROAD. INCLUDING AUSTRALIA, GERMANY, GREECE AND THE UNITED STATES.

 

HE GRADUATED WITH HONORS FROM THE DELPHIAN SCHOOL, IN OREGON. THERE HE TOOK HIS FIRST PHOTOGRAPHY COURSES, WHICH INCLUDED  LEARNING EVERYTHING ABOUT THE DARKROOM.

 

AFTER SEEING THE FIRST GHOSTLIKE SHADOWS APPEAR ON THE PAPER IN THE DEVELOPING TRAY, HE WAS HOOKED. FROM THAT MOMENT ON, HE SPENT THOUSANDS OF HOURS DEVELOPING PICTURES. MANY TIMES, STRAIGHT THROUGH THE NIGHT.

 

ALLAN WENT ON TO STUDY ARCHITECTURE IN MEXICO, WHERE HE AGAIN GRADUATED WITH HONORS. AS PART OF HIS ARCHITECTURE MAJOR, ALLAN RECEIVED A FULL SCHOLARSHIP TO STUDY IN AUSTRALIA WHERE HE WAS TAUGHT BY PRITZKER PRIZE WINNER, GLENN MURCUTT.

 

HAVING STUDIED ARCHITECTURE HAS GIVEN HIM A DIFFERENT POINT THROUGH WHICH TO VIEW THE WORLD AROUND HIM.

TECHNICAL PERFECTION WITH THE CAMERA AND A DIFFERENT POINT FROM WHICH TO VIEW HIS ENVIRONMENT MAKE ALLAN’S PICTURES STAND OUT FROM THE REST.
