    "hola hombre!
    un día escribí sobre tus imágenes que eran como saludos...
    creía que salias con tu cámara a la calle y saludabas a las personas..
    hola hombre, hola mujer...
    ahora sé que no son saludos
    tus imágenes son besos...
    sales y besas al anciano, al niño, al hombre, a la mujer...
    y que tus besos también muerden
    sigue besándonos"

    "bichito is the only artist and photographer whose work i can say is never derivative.

    that is high praise, in a world of endless repetition: to find, here, a true, original eye, with the heart and mind to make the work matter.

    most often, i cannot bear to comment on what bichito presents. his work brings a sense of silent reverie, a communion with art, that quiet moment in a true gallery when one is glad to be alone.

    bichito can make even this irreverent bitch write a testimonio that sounds almost like a homily *s"

    "In a dark momemt and under the shower to have less cold, I thought that I was lost and defeated. And suddenly, I thought to some José pictures. I realised that if I was beaten it was by that order to be the stronger, the brighter, that order coming from my father, my loves, society, works. I realised how that order is destructiv: no compassion by anyone, just admiration for the best, no real love just just lust after.
    And suddenly, I thought to some José pictures and I realised how it's necessary to find an other way, how necessary are those pictures showing how human people can be so weak, so fragile sometimes. How strong is the fragile human hope.
    It's just a quick feeling but I thought that society should teach that when people feel lost, they are not alone. With some José pictures, I'm less alone.
    Thank you, dear!"

    "En días acelerados (impuestos y/o elegidos), Jose regala la pausa. Sus imágenes, vistas a través de un catalejo hecho con la mano, detienen el tiempo y buscan dentro. A Jose le importan las personas que fotografía. Se nota. Sus imágenes son guiños y sonrisas a los que le rodean. A veces son abrazos. Muchas veces son abrazos. Lo noto. Además Jose se enseña, se expone, se muestra con sinceridad y sin vanidad. Se ofrece. Jose hace el mundo más amable."

    "Te diré de medida repentina que no empezé con la apreciación de las fotos callejeras. Es algo que me encanta ver con mis ojos, aun que disfrutos aquellas de fotografos ya bien conocidos. Despues de un tiempo, no tan repentino, empecé a conocer a Jose -- no tanto mediante su abilidad de poner en palabras las ideas difícil en terminos simples basados en autores, cantantes y poemas -- pero sino mediante la manera que mira a la gente. El talento de usar la camara es obvio en sus fotos, pero es la manera que transforma la escena común y le saca el espiritu a las personas las cuales me han hecho un fanático de las fotos que ves aqui. Entonces esta el aspecto con la facilidad y frecuencia con que las sometes. Hay que tomar dos respiros, seguidos y cortos, pues el ver una foto te afecta de una manera, y entoces pasa la pagina, y ves otra mas. No me digas esto pasa a cada rato... te llamo mentiroso/mentirosa :)
    I will tell you, rather suddenly, that I did not appreciate much in street photography. This is something that I rather see with my eyes, although I do enjoy some of the ones I see from well-known photographers. After a while, not as sudden, I started to get to know Jose -- not so much by way of his talent of collecting words from ideas, so easily expressed in simple terms of authors, singers and poetry -- but instead by the way he looks at people. The technical talent in using the camera is obvious in his photos, but in the way that he transforms a common scene, y grabs the people's spirit have made me a fan of the photos shown here. Then, there is that aspect of the ease and frequency. I have to take two breaths, in succession and short, because seeing one photo affects me one way, and then turning the page affects me some more. Don't tell me that this happens everywhere... or I will call you a liar."

    Caio F., a brazilian writer, said exaclty what i feel about your work:

    'Então, que seja doce. Repito todas as manhãs, ao abrir as janelas para deixar entrar o sol ou o cinza dos dias, bem assim, que seja doce. Quando há sol, e esse sol bate na minha cara amassada do sono ou da insônia, comtemplando as partículas de poeira soltas no ar, feito um pequeno universo; (...) que seja doce que seja doce que seja doce""

    "It is necessary to open the eyes and to notice that the good things are inside of us, where the feelings neither need motives nor the desires need some reason . The important is to take advantage of the moment and to learn its duration, because the life is in the eyes of who knows to see it"

    Gabriel Garcia Marques

    I think this quote from Gabriel was written for you, Jose, I can "see" lots of passion for People and surrounding world inside you. You have an unique way to show your soul and the soul of your "street models"...and that's a great way because your world has lots of humanity, sensibility and love for the neighbor

    Life (and all of us) is richer with your existence.

    "What I love most about bichito's images is that they are real. Real life, real emotions, real people, real situations. His angles, lighting and blur take these pieces of life and make them into "art". The art of life, it is all for around us to see, and bichito recognizes this and embraces it. Life imitates art, and art most certainly imitates life.

    I encourage everyone to have a look through bichito's photo stream...be a part of his life with each photograph you view. For me it's like being able to be "his eyes" for just a brief moment to see the world as he sees it, and I find that exhilarating.
