Alberto García-Alix (b. 1956, León, Spain), a career photographer of more than 40 years, takes vivid confrontational monochrome portraits of seamy outcasts and steamy underground figures – whomever catches his eye. Recipient of the Spanish National Photography Award, his arresting images probe our own identity with their power and purity. This is the first solo exhibition in Japan for this astounding European artist.
