During his childhood in Spain, Carlos M. Bonmatí started with photography as a hobby and a familiar entertainment. His first shoots were made in 1988, documenting family holidays. He started to work as an editorial photographer, moving on to a career as a photojournalist for several local and national media outlets. During his university years and, specifically for the last ten years, he has been focusing on photodocumentalism, taking part in workshops and pursuing a master’s degree at Blank Paper School, Madrid.
In 2010, Bonmatí co-founded the photodocumentary collective AbPhoto, which undertakes both individual and collective photo projects. Its main objective is to improve photographic culture in his home city, through workshops, teaching, and curating. In 2014 and 2015, he took part in important exhibitions with the University of Salamanca, and his works have been exhibited in Spain, Portugal, Italy, and Mexico. In the beginning of 2016, he moved to Vancouver, where he continues to develop his photography career.
