|I consider this my first photograph because it was the first print I ever made using a computer. The moment I saw this picture come out from the printer, I was hooked on photography.The year was 1996 and digital printing was still new. No one believed I made the print on an inkjet printer—nor did they believe that I captured it with an $80 pocket camera.
This picture is of my girlfriend from that time, standing on a balcony in Lisbon, Portugal. I snapped the shot candidly while packing our bags for a road trip back to Granada, Spain —the city where we first met.
