Garcia de Marina

About the exhibition

The minimalist and surrealist Garcia de Marina strives to give ordinary objects new identities through his photography. He uses imagination and dreams to manually build different compositions, all without manipulating the photos in Photoshop. He is fascinated by details, and has, since he was a child, been good at finding similarities between different objects, even though they are quite separate in reality. With his exhibition Nimius Garcia de Marina wants to create new context for different objects, often with a sense of humour, and give you as a viewer a new way of looking at them. He works with soft colours to create harmony in his photos – and he always looks for the perfect angle.
