PERDIZ #3 contributors: Núria Rius

1. Who are you and what do you do?

My name is Núria and I use a camera as an extension of my eyes. I’m not very good with words so I prefer to tell stories with images.


2. What have you done for PERDIZ?

I’ve take a portrait of Daphne Selfe in the third edition. A great woman. Without a doubt one of the interviews that I will always save with affection in my heart and in my photo album.

3. What time did you get up today and what did you have for breakfast?

I got up at half past eight and had the same breakfast I have everyday: first some orange juice with two pieces of toast and olive oil and then a bowl of cereal with oat milk.

4. What makes you happy in your day to day?

Those great things in life that people seem to say are just little things: waking up beside my partner, seeing the kids plays, a smile from a stranger in the street, snowball fights, dancing endlessly, the first day at the beach, the smell of fresh-ground coffee, getting a kiss on a first date, singing my favourite song out loud, a ray of sunlight coming in through the window and, more than anything, knowing that the people I love are happy.

5. Do you remember the last time something made you laugh and what it was?

This video. I’m a big fan of this style of videos. It’s a shame that we’ve lost this freshness, originality, and spontaneity of saying what we feel in the moment when we left childhood behind. That point of madness. The world could be so much better.

6. Is there anything you’ve changed or begun to do lately that has made you life better?

Smiling more. Above all trying to be more positive.

7. Could you recommend somewhere in your city (London) which makes you feel happy ?

Although I live all the way across town, I love going for a walk in Richmond Park. For a fleeting moment you can leave behind that feeling of being in a big city. Plus you can see so many deer up close that it just fascinates me

8. And a song that puts you in a good mood?

“I Saw Her Standing There” by The Beatles. Rock’n’roll + The Beatles. What more could you ask for?

9. And something that makes you tummy smile?

Either the potato omelette or fideuá of my father, the best chef.

10. What is the last bit of good news you’ve heard?

The future date of my next group show in London (the 6th of March at Mother London).
