Miguel Trillo


2 in stock

A retrospective on the work of Spanish photographer Miguel Trillo (Jimena de la Frontera, Cádiz, 1953). His work can be described as photo-documentary, (though his first works are clearly experimental). His encounters with his subjects are almost always accidental, capturing their daily and habitual contexts.

Since the beginning of the 80s, Miguel Trillo has depicted anonymous protagonists from what was known as the “Movement” in Madrid, and has documented the evolution of urban “tribes”, (Mods, Punks, Goths (Death-rockers), Rappers, Head Bangers…) over the last 3 decades all over the world. His photographs depict adolescents and young adults searching for and asserting their identities through clothing, attitude, and behavior, reflecting the contradictions of a society that has played with experimentation and profound transformation.
