Oskar Gaskón

(Donostia- San Sebastián 1971)
I have always been interested and attracted to photography and in the year 2004 I did the basic course in photography in the AFI (Photographic Association of Irún) .

This interest became an important part of my life, not only because of photography itself, but because of the people that I have come to know because of this hobby. I was initially drawn to landscape photography and minimalism and I am currently experimenting with street photography and travel photography.
