Carlos Pérez Siquier
Almería 1930. He is considered as a pioneer of spanish avant-guard photography. National Award of Photography in 2003. Co-founder of AFAL (Agrupación Fotográfica Almeriense) in the 50's whose members set the bases for a new documentary photography in Spain. His La Chanca series (color and b/w) of a modest barrio in Almeria stands out as a humanistic document. Even more surprising and innovating was Colores del Sur in the 70's, only comparable to later works of William Klein ( 80's) or Martin Parr (90's). Mi Sombra y Yo has been published in 2017 and prints are exclusive at Photo Lounge.
