Farewell17 diciembre 2009
Anónimo García was breed in a working class family in the outskirts of Zaragoza, a provincial city in NE Spain. As a young adult, his ideals (mainly multiculturalism, freedom, creativity, self-realisation, architectural beauty, environmentally sustainable living and respect for other living beings, among others) made him feel severely disappointed with his hometown and his fellow countrymen. In opposition, his arrival to Oxford in 2004 and London in 2005 left a profound positive mark on him, as he experimented how both cities embraced or promoted most of these ideals. London also offered him the chance to fulfil his potential in multimedia work, which he has used to support the Latin American community since his arrival to the city.
This series of digital photographs are a homage to the city in which García “was born for a second time”. The stills have been chosen to represent various aspects of what for him is London’s greatness, including some of his above mentioned ideals.
