The exhibition entitled 'Alberto García-Alíx. From where there is no return' is a selection of photographs, all taken by Alberto García-Alíx between 1976 and 2009. It includes pictures of different eras and formats, a kind of photographic reflection of the artist. By means of some 90 photographs in which the present and past intersect the viewer gains an understanding of the artist's oeuvre, based on the quality and profundity of each shot, but also on the reflection itself which brings the images together in a unified whole.
Some 20 works at the exhibition are vintage prints belonging to the artist's personal collection, while the remainder are new prints.
