Rafael Trobat by Rafael Trobat
This is a superbly illustrated overview of the work of critically renowned Spanish photographer Rafael Trobat. Rafael Trobat is an internationally renowned photographer, and pupil of master photographer Cristina Garcia Rodero, who is best known for his striking images of daily life in Nicaragua at the end of the revolution in the 1990s. In order to achieve greater reality and closeness to what is being presented in his pictures, Trobat seeks the position of the photographer who is absent at the moment of taking the shot, hidden from sight of his models, without intervening in what takes place before his lens. Having taken this decision he only had to find a setting fitting his intents in order to fulfil his imaginative potential, and he chose life, with its contradictions and misfortunes from a close and condescending position, with ironic complicity in his gaze, seeking reality itself within this wink to the unreal and the absurd.
