Alberto Sanchez rediscovers the world through his viewfinder and re-visions that experience through his layering and evocative palette. His body of work explores the notions of urban expansionism, capitalism and how individuals define themselves in an increasingly overloaded sensorial environment. The artist travels the world with his unique vision, taking photographs in black and white of the cities, seascapes and landscapes that captivate him.
In his ongoing series, SURF, the artist focuses on the beautiful Australian seaside. Working from black and white photographs the artist takes himself in these spectacular scenery, Alberto prints, hacks and re-invents his own images using a unique hand colouring technique, creating his own form of magic realism where photographic documentary is meshed with improbable landscapes.
