Javier gives importance to the whole creative process and often makes his own prints, focusing on the craft of photography and creating a tangible body of work through the physicality of its color palettes, textures and format.

He has created fashion stories for magazines such as Vogue Spain, Vogue Portugal, Vogue Polska, Numéro Tokyo, Numéro Netherlands, Telegraph Luxury, The Greatest, Odda, Man About Town, Metal, Boycott, Behind the Blinds and Autre Magazine.
HIGH SNOBIETY X LA MANSO
He has collaborated with brands like Louis Vuitton, Emporio Armani, Altuzarra, Paul Smith, Benetton, Woolrich, Nike and Massimo Dutti, and also shot artists such as Khalid, Post Malone, Rosalía, Omar Souleyman and André Leon Talley.
“The truth is that I spend more time observing and thinking about how to photograph the world around me than physically “being” there. […] The obvious is not fun.”
