“#hellomynameis Sergio Castañera Gómez (@_casta_). I’m 17 years old and I live in Madrid. I like to take my camera when I go out with my friends and photograph the place we’re visiting at that particular moment. In the last year, I’ve realized that simplicity makes me feel good, so I try to show that in my pictures.
My family life is pretty normal. My parents go to work, come back and we all have dinner together. Some adults may think that young people only dream, but it’s not true. I dream about traveling and taking pictures for a living, but I know there are two kinds of people: the ones who dream and the ones who make it happen. I want to be the latter.”
