  • About the artwork

    This is the diary of a journey. In 2009 I became a father. Overnight, and with no idea of what was in store, I saw my wife give birth to our first daughter. A deep love towards that tiny person slowly inundated my life. But the stronger the light, the darker are the shadows, and becoming a father sent me back to dark episodes of my own childhood. You cannot be a father without the memory of being a son, so five years later, I aim to fuse these two roles through photography in the search for my own identity: I go into the woods, sometimes alone, sometimes with my daughter, because that is where my memories lie, and where realities resonate as distant in time and space as they are near emotionally. And this exercise inevitably describes the limits between reality and fiction (like my pictures, some of them “found” and some “staged”), because the passing of time pushes the truth into forgetfulness and maximizes the imagination.

    - Alex Llovet

    "There is no doubt that Llovet is a clear reference in today's Spanish photography, because he knows how to reflect in a personal and unique way, full of lyricism and poetry."

    - Francisca Pageo / Détour

    "The brutality of bringing someone into this world is what makes Alex start the search for something else: a journey into memory through the echo of his intimacy in nature. A beautiful work, as open as it is dreamlike, with strong coherence."

    - Silvia Omedes / Photographic Social Vision 

    "Each page of his story proposes a new enigma or mystery to unveil... this is one of his contributions to the poetic narrative and it opens a gap in the possibilities of creating and linking visual metaphors as accurate as they are latent..."

    - Llorenç Raich / IEFC 

    "In this case, the book becomes as an object, a perfect artifact in terms of form, visual concept and content, and it is now among my favorites of 2016."

    - Andrés Medina / Seeking Magazine


    "This is a passionately personal book and that's all to the good. The simple images come from the heart, a place where I feel the best work usually comes from. There is no clever artifice here, just pictures that hum with promise."?

    - Harvey Benge

    "His images are always quiet and serene but at the same time intriguing and expressive, inviting us to debate and discover the meanings of the scene. Alex’s images are multi-layered and every time we go back to them we will uncover hidden surprises."

    - Analog Magazine
