García de Marina is a Spanish conceptual photographer who began developing his passion for photography in 2010. This marked the beginning of a sparkling career characterised by photographic reflection. In less than a year, he unveiled his rare photographic gaze and began presenting his work in various exhibitions in Spain as well as internationally.
His work possesses a narrative by setting a stage and scenarios. With his lens he seeks to transform and stamp objects with new identities, whilst challenging the obvious and paying homage to the everyday. Endowing inanimate objects with a leading role, whilst stripping them of their essence, ready for a reinvention that seeks and tells a story. Though García de Marina touches on and can be influenced by economic and social issues, he does not title his works, deliberately leaving the viewer free for their own interpretation.
His work has been published in several countries as well as in Spain and he has taken part in a number of group and solo exhibitions and art fairs. In 2015 he was chosen by the Spanish Embassy to participate in 'Photo Week Washington D.C. and in 2017, the Contemporary Art Museum of Castilla Leon (MUSAC) selected three of his pieces for the 'Constellations' exhibition, where for the first time, modern visual and experimental poetry in Spain was addressed (1963-2016). Recently he has participated in photographic festivals internationally, including Photo Romania, Photometria in Greece, Festival of Light in Argentina, Bucharest Foto Week, Addis Foto Fest in Ethiopia, Uppsala Foto Festival in Sweden and Yangon Photo Festival in Myanmar (2018). Also this year saw him exhibiting his work at the Barjola Museum, alongside Joan Brossa, one of Spain's most important visual poets at the exhibition, 'Dialo2’.
