Azumendi discovered a nomad way of life while mountaineering with his camera. In the last three decades he has worked as a freelance photographer for the best travel magazines of the world and also for advertising campaigns. He was born in Getxo (Vizcaya), holds a degree in Psychology and has an internationally recognized career, with such highlights as the official Panama Canal book, a visual work on Bolivia financed by its Government, or his photos on the most remote World Heritage UNESCO places. He has also contributed in more than five hundred books of different topics, with personal and collective exhibitions, photography courses and, regularly, with the Center of Contemporary Photography of Bilbao. His archive includes pictures on places and people from more than a hundred countries and his photographs emphasize his profound interest in human beings. The archive’s identifying characteristics are its color, its mystery, and the joy expressed by those lucky enough to stand in front his camera.
