by Ludwig Argüelles
Born in Spain (1959), he studied charcoal drawing with maestro Antonio Mendibil before
entering the Technical High School of Architecture in Valladolid
University. Maybe this fact has been the reason behind his always black
and white photography.
Antique Milesian philosophers from Greece were convinced that a virtual
space in the universe called Holos did exist where all the ideal
mathematical models, both known and unknown, did reside. Holos would be
the source, the Cosmos its manifestation.
In the same way, maybe all the existing images, present, past and
future, do exist in an Holos-Photo space. This website is an invitation
to discover the virtual world of black and white photography, a gateway
from the real world towards selected captures of spacetime.

professionals are able to fulfill the high standards of Holos-Photo
