Born in 1973 and now living in Barcelona, Álvaro Sánchez-Montañés is a photographer of the unexpected, the unrehearsed. He likes to capture on the fly these snapshots of the microscopic capsules of time which slip into the ordinary everyday, in which everyday objects or events appear slightly out of kilter, or, on the contrary, work rather too well, as though chance was overplaying its hand. The gates of paradise are closed, dogs fly, sea swimmers, in hats and goggles, look like aliens… His cheerful, gaily coloured world is also filled with reminiscences: a bar at night, as snapped by him, seems straight out of a Hopper canvas. Sánchez-Montañés’ work has been exhibited in Europe and America, and has won him many prizes. His works feature in a number of private and public collections.
