My name is Emilio Chuliá and I am from Valencia (Spain) in the analog world.  Early in my life I started as a tennis player but I was also a big guitar fan who finally ended up studying Architecture at the Polytechnic University of Valencia.   And somewhere the middle of all these passions and activities,  I found Instagram and through this wonderful application, mobile photography . It’s been more than two years now and I can truly say that that single moment has changed the way I perceive things that are around me, it has change the way I relate to my environment.

My nick is my biggest mistake on Instagram.   I never thought this new found interest would take me this far and when I realized I was going places…  it was too late to change.  I would have chosen a cooler Nickname like “Papillon”, “eyeofthetiger” or something like this…. You can also find me on Facebook:
