(León, 2016 1956). At the beginning of the 80s, he held his first individual exhibitions in galleries in Madrid such as the Galería Buades or the Galería Moriarty, and in other international galleries such as the Portfolio Gallery in London. During the first edition of PhotoEspaña, in 1998, he held a major retrospective exhibition that was a huge success in the eyes of the public and critics alike. Garcí-Alix received the National Award in Photography from the Spanish Ministry of Culture in 1999, at which time he began working with the Juana de Aizpuru Galleries in Spain and Kamel Mennour in France.
Between 2003 and 2006, he lived in Paris where he made a trilogy in video alternating photographic and filmed images that represent the incursion of the artist in the video format, a discipline that he is also continuing to develop in the present time. In 2009, he presented a retrospective exhibition at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía as well as at the Ullens Centre in Beijing and in the Maison de la Photographie in Moscow, among others. His work can be found in large international collections such as the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (Spain); Fonds Nationales d'Art Contemporain (France) or the Deutsche Börse (Germany), among others.
Garcia-Alix has combined his photographic activity with that of editor, being the founder of the cultural magazine El Canto de la Tripulación (1989 to 1997), and now he is the director, together with Frédérique Bangerter, publishing house, Cabeza de Chorlito.
