About me: Albert Güell i Juanola (Barcelona, 1964) I have a Degree in Humanities (UOC) and certificated as a specialist in audio-visual production (EMAV) and Photography (IEFC). Currently I'm studying an University Master's Degree in Education and ICTs (UOC). For many years that, from the production and commercial management of audio-visual media, I moved to "the world of paper." I must say that despite the weak appearance of this material, I’m convinced that the paper, when inhabited by ideas, becomes an alloy of diamond hardness. In this "world of paper," I write stories and novels and  I also make historical research, write and edit editorial projects for companies, foundations and museums. I have a great concern for the arts and the creation and transmission of knowledge. Moreover, I have launched a new series of photographs as a kind of personal work. I invite you to take a look at the tabs "fotografies d'artistes" "fotografies d'arquitectura" and "superficial portrait".
