"When I was a child I did not know what would I be. Then I realized I used to spend hours making the covers of my school projects. In fact, I used to only do the covers and put white sheets of paper inside to make it look like a finished project..therefore I decided to study graphic design and photograph."-Pol Ubeda Hervàs
