With “Cromogenias” Pepo Alcalá (Malaga, 1973) explores the limits of the abstract photography. He seeks to create, with photographic tools, a world imagined, shaped by fantasy, through an inner journey. “Cromogenias” are not digital images created by computer. The raw materials of this serie are the water and the wine. Pepo, using the correct light, looks for the transparency of these elements so they acquire abstract forms and colors, but only photographing the reality. This Spanish artist shows us that the photography is no based only on observing and capturing the real but it also creates images of great beauty. So Pepo Alcalá is absolutely right when he says that “the photography, wich is now universally acknowledged as art, should not limit itself to mimesis but to seek its own path of development and to show that not only is able to capture images but also to create them”
