Self-taught independent photographer.
I got my first camera (which I still keep and use) when I was eight. Since the 1990's I became more and more interested in art and started a long term multi disciplinary photography track, including analog, digital and alternative processes. I exhibited in Ibiza my early Poalroid works in 1993. My works have been shown in private galleries in Spain, Portugal, Italy and New York.
Born Jorge Manzano 1958. I spent my childhood in the southern Mediterranean Spain, where I was born. George Appletree is my photographer's name.
Naval architect. Master in fishing technology, Marintek NTH University, Norway. Developing my career into different fields. To finally become a full time photographer.
My formation includes many readings, courses and workshops with renowned photographers like Ferdinando Scianna, Bruno Barbey, Sylvia Plachy or Vineet Vohra.
