The kind of photography that I do could be called everyday life photography, spontaneous portraits, urban photography, anthropological photography or travel photography. Almost all my photos imply a close interaction with people. Recently I am exploring a more aesthetical kind of landscape photography. I consider myself a photographer not because of the quality of the images I take but because I simply enjoy doing it so much.

Antonio ZiriĆ³n is a photographer and anthropological filmmaker currently studying at the Granada Centre for Visual Anthropology at the University of Manchester, Manchester UK. Thematically, as stated above, his photography spans a range from portraits to landscapes- but also could be described as storytelling- each one of his photographs describes a history, whether it be in the form of a travel journal, a portrait subject, a city or country, or a physical landscape- rich in detail and emotion.  

Antonio has participated in 3 collective exhibitions in Mexico City and one in Germany. His pictures appear in several websites such as and and have been published in Mexican photo magazines such as Cuartoscuro, La Tempestad and Tragaluz. With several friends, Antonio founded an organization called "HOMOVIDENS" dedicated to the production visual media for social research and action two years ago. The organization has produced a series of video documentary projects of which more information can be found at . Antonio's pursuits have taken him to Vietnam, Thailand, Hong Kong, Cuba and Egypt, where he is always accompanied by his camera.
