Nacho Alonso

The photographs that Nacho Alonso captures in his travels through the dark side of the day are not foreseeable. What he gives us is something else , another photo. Neither postcards, nor the essence of the places , not even the precise and futile moment. His gaze is different and if he doubts, he prefers to save the shot.”I would prefer not to.” Bartleby whispers . Distracted portraits in a ghetto of drug addicts, apathetic cartographies of bad living, bohemians without score…Nacho is the photographer of a second-hand night, twenty four hours. And the result is irregular, authentic and intense. ”

(Juañ Gallego)

In the evenings I walk in a place which in the past had caught my eye. In those fleeting visions I recognized a space that fitted like a glove, to my role as a photographer. A place where prostitution takes place in an extremely photogenic scenario, and this, the perfect harmony between the stage and the characters, seduces me.
