"Retrospective Exhibition" Photography by Santiago Martinez de Septién in der Galerie LIK in Wien.
The exhibition, which includes over twenty photographs, offers a curated look into the work of this Spanish artist. It traces his career from his early black and white works, through his more minimalist phase, to his latest pieces, which focus on street photography, exploring color with deliberate composition and a strong emphasis on verticality.
This retrospective is the most comprehensive to date, covering the author's unique visual language over the past few years of work.
Critics have described his photography as "a poetics of life, a poetics of a friendly environment," noting that "his discourse is seemingly simple, but it is full of messages, of spiritual power and creative intelligence" (Fernando Portillo Guzmán, Punto Ciego Gallery).
Santiago Martínez de Septién's photography is characterized not only by the subject matter it depicts but also by the precise organization of the forms and figures within the frame. He contributes his subjective interpretation through his gaze, affirming the universal language of photography to capture the time that has already passed (FRANCISCO PUÑAL SUÁREZ, Mundiario).
The exhibition includes several of his most renowned works, which have received numerous international awards, such as "Taking Ballet Lessons," named "Discovery of the Year" at the "Latín IPA" and a finalist at the "Lucie Awards" held at Carnegie Hall in New York in October 2018, among others.
