 Yeah...unreal air on that flatspin-nac. It's cool to see how passionate Sebas is about what he does. There were some really good photos in there

 Amazing photos! Working with the Lacondeguy's must be so much fun, and I love that Old School... t-shirt! Big Grin

 I ones met Sebas on a Meride press camp. It was during dinner and I was holding a little piece of paper and I wrote down the words: "food fight in 5 minuts" I never gave that piece of paper to him and I regret it to this moment....
I love your spirit bro, rock on, your a wise man.

 As far as the reply to the first question goes, i think it is completely true what he says. My girlfriend on the other hand would say that I need to learn who i am myself. I think that advice should be heard by Sebas! I love the shots by the way, and the way you think is so creepily similar to the way I think.

 Defining the "self" is always a tricky subject.

When I think about my "self", I think that my self is the same self as everyones self. What makes me different is my body (although all bodies are physically really the same) and my personality (a often negative state of mind, made up from past experiences that makes you give up the will to look at the world in a completely open and fresh vision, it stops you from being new every moment)

Your self is a fragment of the one and only self, the ultimate life energy that is inside all of us. There for, we are fragments of the one self, and that's why we are all full of the one and only life and there for WE ARE ONE.

That's why we are social beings in my vision anyway.

So, If you look for your self, look for other people, see them as spiritual books, talk to them with an open mind and learn something about others and there for your self as well. Don't judge, just listen and feel them.

If you think about your self, you mind is going to give you falls impressions that are stored in the mind, stored impressions from things you've done and things that have happened to you. So your better of not to think "I'm this or I'm that".

Be new every moment and investigate. You are human, like all humans, and you, like all humans, want to be happy. With that knowledge, as a starting point, this earth could be a awesome place. Be good for each other, please.

Well, that should be enough for today. Enjoy!

 Well you really do get to know the guy through this interview, seems like if there was a place to introduce himself then this is the place to do it! While other photographers give pretty boring answers sometimes, this interview really changed it up a bit it and was an enspiring read.

 Nice photos, but the whole 'I'm an angry punk, f*ck you business man' thing has all been done before. For someone who espouses originality, it's not really that original.

..and the ACAB tattoo? I used to write that on my knuckles when I was a little kid until me mum gave me a clip around the ear and made me wash it off. A real punk wouldn't plan out what punk tattoos he will be getting next.

 The "Self Made" Tatoo is a Travis Barker Rip-Off anyway. so there goes his originality !

however, as a photographer he is awesome !

 Also for some one who 'doesn't care about fashion' he seems very image conscious to me... trying to make a bit of a statement, and all the stuff about every one living like wild animals? pfffft on your own there fella think you've been on the sid ahaha dont get me wrong photography is brilliant but i think he should let the photo's do the talking and stick to that.

 "...and I worked quickly to be poor in my own way". that last paragraph was really inspirational, this guy sounds like a pretty genuine person, fantastic photos as well!

 I first started noticing Sebas photos a couple years ago on Andreu's facebook and I've been a big fan of his work ever since, especially his studio stuff. This was the best Interview I have read on pinkbike. Really cool to learn more about such an interesting guy, really cool to see an interview with a real person not worried about who he has to impress. sick!

 Great interview Ian! I first met Sebas about 2 or 3 years ago in Barcelona. At first I thought he was one of these "wanna be pro-photographers" with all the silver tape and small cameras.. and specially with this punk rock look! When I saw his photos I was really amazed... as well as when I was introduced to him working together in some events... he is one of the coolest guys to hang with! He is so crazy I can´t believe he doesn´t even drink! Hope to see more of his photos soon! Greets from Anaconda! Haha!

 Those are some absolutely amazing photos, Sebas! An excellent read as well, much more insight than you'd find in most Q and A's.
