Alfonso Brezmes; Adult Tales " Paradise under construction "

There are no other paradises than lost paradises
~~Jorge Luis Borges

The photographic work of Alfonso Brezmes lies on the border of fiction and gaming. His photographs are imbued with great visual poetry. In the series Paradise under construction, the viewer is transported to an imaginary country, a sort of lost Eden, a surreal world where everything is possible. One comes across strange creatures out of the mist: mysterious characters, travelers, lost children wandering among the ruins of a lost paradise.

Between the jungle and the icebergs, Alfonso Brezmes depicts the remains of an idyllic world that has been extinguished. Also known for his collages, and as a storyteller, the Spanish photographer takes the viewer into his world, inviting him to perform and imagine the rest of the story.

Alfonso Brezmes lives and works in Madrid, Spain. Paradise under construction is currently on view in a group exhibition at Galerie VOZ, Paris.

In the series Postcards from the Future (2009-2010), Alfonso Brezmes depicts a world of forgotten childhood memories. This series was born with the idea of a fantastic time-traveler who would send postcards from the future to us, the present dwellers. 
" I was inspired by fables I read when I was a child, and by writers such as Borges, Cortazar, Bradbury or  Kafka." Alfonso Brezmes
