Alberto García-Alix, a chronicler who is faithful to every era and moment he has lived through, is – as defined by himself – a person who takes photographs. An advocate of analogue, he takes his photos by shooting without contemplating composition, gesture or theme. Self-portraits and portraits of unknown characters, outsiders, and recognised names, those who are very close to him or people he empathizes with, his own environment has always been his most direct source and formed the main body of his work. And also the search for settings, as well as intangible moments outdoors that are a way of expressing his interior. Recently he has included the urban landscape of cities or the natural environment, like that of Formentera, but without straying from his constant searches. A reflection of situations and mirrors of internal emergences and breakdowns as revealing as the direct gaze of his subjects.
