Pablo Robertson de Unamuno is a London-based photographer and filmmaker brought up in a bi-cultural Scottish-Spanish environment. He is the great-grandson of the famous Spanish writer and philosopher Miguel de Unamuno.
“We should try to be the parents of our future rather than the offspring of our past.” ― Miguel de Unamuno
Pablo is interested in many aspects of photography, from fashion to abstract and documentary. "I come from a photographic background and still do photography which has helped me to develop many of my existing skills in filmmaking".
"Throughout the years, my work and my vision have expanded, I love working with film now and mixing the two mediums".
"'L'Afrique c'est chique" series was taken in West Africa (Togo) while Pablo was there working as a voluntary worker in humanitarian charity in several towns and cities.
Pablo Robertson de Unamuno, Albino Boy and Friends
Pablo Robertson de Unamuno started as a photographer and then moved to film after having acted in a short film in Paris and decided study film in Napier film school in 2005.
After moving to London he started making many short abstract pieces often mixing photography and film together with experimental sound. He has been interested in filming urban and rural landscapes and trying to understand their relationship and determine the boundaries, as well as the advantages and disadvantages each have for one another.
His work also deals with the individual and how this dialogue between the urban and the rural world effects him and the human population as a whole. He has explored these themes in many of his pieces, the first piece where this was communicated was in his film Voices without sound (2009) where he mixed film and photography to record the empty streets of London. With sound recording off the busy London streets and interviews of people from all walks of life to create a post-apocalyptic dreamlike piece.
