García García

García García is a response to my late grandfather Fermín. An eclectic array of images of his life puzzled inside my mind the portrait of a man I barely knew in life.
This body of work aims to become a dialogue between who he was and how I relate to him. More extensively, it is my ode to my own family affection, to regular people and to the power of honesty within photography.

García García is a project that stems from the archive, mostly photographic, inherited from my grandfather Fermín García García (1911-1997).

The work is the consequence of my relentless admiration to his figure, and also
an example of the power of vernacular imagery in order to neutralize the effect of loss.

“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.”
