The rebel of Spanish photography, Alberto García-Alix, with a solo exhibition in the Sofia City Art Gallery as part of the PhotoFabric festival.

The visible and invisible world of a world photographer presented in a dizzying walk through his career
The exhibition "Invisible to the Eyes" takes a tour through the career of Alberto García-Alix, tracing his development as a photographer through different periods, formats and techniques.
It is part of the program of the FotoFabrika photography festival and can be seen in the Sofia City Art Gallery from June 6 to July 14.
The exhibition includes 50 specially selected frames from different series of García-Alix. Here are some of his earliest photos from the late 1970s and early 1980s, as well as many more recent photographs.
The black-and-white aesthetic, which Garcia-Alix never betrays, speaks of the rebelliousness and high-speed living to which we vow, but also the tenderness and romance of the path we invariably follow. And this path connects us with an invisible thread to all the others who have set out on their journeys.

Alberto Garcia-Alix will be a special guest at the opening of the exhibition on June 6, and in the following days he will hold a workshop with Bulgarian photographers.

About Alberto Garcia-Alix: Alberto Garcia-Alix was born in 1956 in Leon, Spain. An 11-year-old moved to Madrid with his family, where he lives to this day. His first attempts with photography date from 1976, and his first exhibitions - in the 80s in Madrid and London. One of his most famous exhibitions is the retrospective exhibition he showed at the first edition of PhotoEspaña in 1998. A year later he received the National Photography Award of Spain. He is also the winner of the Gold Medal for merit in the field of fine arts, awarded to him by the Spanish Ministry of Culture (2019).

He has had solo exhibitions in London, Beijing, Moscow, Paris, as well as in Latin America. His works are part of the collections of some of the largest museums and galleries in the world, including the National Museum of Art Reina Sofía (Spain), Fonds Nationales d'Art Contemporain (France) and Deutsche Börse (Germany). He is also one of the leading figures in the cultural movement La Movida Madrileña (The Madrid Scene), as some of his photographs have captured exciting moments from the early years of the movement, among whose members are director and screenwriter Pedro Almodovar, actresses Rosy de Palma and Emma Suarez, flamenco legend Camaron de la Isla. For FotoFabrika festival:

For years, Garcia-Alix has combined photography with publishing. He is the creator of the culture magazine El Canto de la Creación (1989–1997) and co-founder of the publishing house Cabeza de Chorlito.

FotoFabrika shows the high examples of contemporary reportage and artistic photography. The PhotoFabric Foundation invites the viewer to become a participant and rework what is happening in the world in their personal position, provoking thought, emotion and action through visual art.

The project is implemented with the support of the Ministry of Culture and the Cervantes Institute.
