García García

Sometimes an emotional approach to my family and heritage, some others an erratic exercise of photography, ‘García García’ is an exploration of my grandfather Fermín’s life. Just another man, but not for me.

Anecdotes, old pictures and my mother. Those are the elements that have defined my admiration for my grandfather, Fermín García García (1911-1997).

In the past two years, I have tried to make sense of his life, and to respond it through my photographs.

“We should start laughing before feeling happiness, so that death doesn’t come without having laughed.”

”Oviedo 27-8-1934:

    In the depths of the sea, the pearl was born. Its high stone, the blue violet.
    In the mist, the drops of dew.
    In my memory, you.”

“When will the World end? The very day I die”
