Party Animals started in 2018, just for pure curiosity, or the real need, to photograph those humor agents who sal with a smile the dark panorama that seems to be presented to us every day.
In times when the apocalypse is the least that could happen to us, humorists enshrine themselves as banners of resistance and optimism.
Some talk about politics , others about feminism, absurd, black humor ... all, from their character, sometimes difficult to differentiate from the person, chew and digest reality to swallow the friendlier and reinvented version of the disaster. We allow ourselves, with his irreverent point of view, to go on, as if all this heavy joke that the present time does remind us, were just a procedure and a necessary evil.
Sense of humor is what we call “Marca España”, this photographic project is built as a tribute to something that defines us all and that must be protected above trends and partisanship.
Being a professional at something that makes you laugh could seem like a job suicide in the mastered times that we live and in a society that is measured by productivity at full speed, but in every good pressure cooker you should not lose sight of the valve: humor is something very serious.
Perhaps being a photographer in a real and virtual world in the image is given away and valued in clicks, it also goes in the opposite direction to strategic good work, but Party Animals aims to bring together all this absurdity to treat with respect and category the current scene of humorists in Spain , a national heritage that we all carry on our heads and that helps us bear the weight of everything around us.
