“Funny Lovers” is a cinematographic series relating the misadventures of a man and his quest for real love in the times of Tinder and hyper-communication. Through more than eighty images, as each scene of a movie, we see the evolution of the main character, his reflections and encounters with other lonely souls. Completely inspired by the magic of cinema, the series has become an exercise of literature, philosophy, image-making and self-portrait. “Funny Lovers” explores the different medias with a characteristical use of colour and space, creating a piece inspired by French, Italian and Spanish cinema. Jesus Torio is an Andalusian living in Edinburgh, where he works as a nurse while in his spare time enjoys the creative process of photography, literature, video and design.
