With Ibiza always within his vision, the unbounded and ever-changing silhouettes he encounters inspire Oscar Munar.
He takes an unconventional and intense perspective of the crosswinds of fashion and nature in the melting pot he calls home, coupling this with an uncompromising eye towards the female body and a sense of the immediate, real and often raw.
Always trying to capture the moment, look and strength that each image transmits – either by explosion of colours or composition, his photographs resonate by finding the inner soul of each subject and capturing said vision. Issues of gender, youth and freedom are also framed within confined viewpoints; creating an immediacy that is characteristic of his work, but can be explored further when moving out of reality and infiltrating fiction – something which is apparent in many of his most adventurous pictures.
Based in Ibiza and born in Igualada, Barcelona, Oscar’s love of photography has taken him all around the world. His travels led him to Scotland where he studied photography at Napier University. It was here he began working with various model agencies before progressing to The Scotsman to write the social column and fashion sections
Since then he has worked with an impressive repertoire of publications including Elle UK, Vogue USA, Pacha Magazine, Ibiza Style magazine and In&Out France, GQ Spain.
His latest studio shots reflect beautifully a predisposition towards the natural, which is combined with a dissonant note that surprises the viewer. His subjects are the beautiful denizens of the island, imbued in settings that reflect its culture – and Ibiza itself is the unspoken muse of his work.
