Alberto García Alix Biography

Leon (Spain), 1956

Master Spanish photographer Alberto Garcia Alix is known as one of the best oeuvres in contemporary Spanish photography. He is the foremost photographer to emerge from Spain's La Movida, the post-Franco era of free expression. Through his documentarian approach, he vibrantly captures the atmosphere of 1980's Madrid and beyond. His photographs fall into two fundamental genres: portraiture and still life. They are often provacative, erotic, and personal.

In 1999, he received the prestigious National Award of Photography of Spain. He has also designed the album covers of leading musical performers in Spain and Europe.
