Jimena-born Miguel Trillo brings his photography to Algeciras

ALGECIRAS Miguel Trillo was born in Jimena in 1953. He graduated from the Complutense University in Madrid with degrees in Image and Hispanic Linguistics and has become one of Spain's best-regarded photographers. Amongst other things, he has followed and photographed Spanish youth for many years, beginning at towards the end of the Franco regime, an era known as La Movida. This show is about that youth since the advent of democracy and the derogation of many of Franco's repressive laws. His pictures are full of intense colours, this series showing that the young have been converting streets and corners of towns, villages and cities into colourful background for their new-found aesthetics of freedom. The show, organised by ALCULTURA with the cooperation of UFCA, the photography collective, and the Centro Andaluz de la Fotografía, opens on Friday, July 12 at 9pm, at the Red Containers on Ensenada de El Saladillo, Avenida de la Hispanidad, in Algeciras (Access from the Paco de Lucía roundabout - but find your way here) For more info:;; or 956 572 508.
