Summer Wanderlust in Gaudi’s City: Soul-Soothing Pictures by Horatiu Lazar

Horațiu Lazăr is a Romanian photographer temporarily based in Barcelona, while travelling around Europe. He’s the mastermind of Bad Influence, an “art urban clothing” project that mixes fashion with extravagant psychedelic patterns. Here’s more about it.

Since he moved to Spain half a year ago, he basically captured in this ongoing photo-series everything he’s been up to. A rich variety of colors, moods and scenes that combined together almost make you backpack and fucking go to Iberian Peninsula yourself, trading this way your shitty, comfortable job for a piece of heaven. Trust me, if you are the “eager-to-travel-but-don’t-actually-travel” type, you want to live in this guy’s Instagram. That’s all I’m saying. Just have a quick look, all right?








Some pictures are straight as they come, some are filtered and some double-exposured in most unexpected ways, but all of them depicting de beautifully restful everyday life in the Spanish metropolis. Urban meets nature, sensitivity meets cheekiness, privacy meets randomly crowded landscapes, all details as seen through the lens of a photographer who seems to enjoy his time.
