Óskar Alvarado es el ganador de la séptima edición del festival Art Photo Bcn que tuvo lugar en diciembre de 2020 con su proyecto Where Fireflies Unfold. Con este proyecto Óskar proporciona una mirada diferente sobre Deleitosa, el pueblo de Cáceres de origen de su familia y que en 1951 fue el protagonista del reportaje de Eugene Smith para la revista Life. El que fue un icono fotográfico del atraso social y económico en la sociedad rural española nos habla ahora de la ausencia-presencia de personas y seres que los habitan.

Óskar Alvarado was born in Vitoria-Gasteiz. He lives in Barcelona where he combines his work as a Photography professor with the production of personal works. His work has been awarded and exhibited in many international festivals.

Where Fireflies Unfold has had a strong repercussion in the last two years. It won at FESTIVAL IMAGES GIBELLINA in Sicily, OPENWALLS ARLES in 2020 and 2021, Portfolio Reviews at HELSINKI PHOTO FESTIVAL. It was also selected at KOLGA TBILISI PHOTO AWARD in Tiflis, BELFAST PHOTO FESTIVAL and VERZASCA FOTO FESTIVAL in Sonogno.

Beside the project he is going to explain to us his experience at festivals and the path of his work in different dissemination and photographic materialisation platforms.
