The Evocative Photography of Jorge Alcaide

Thursday, July 30, 2009

jorge-alcaideJorge Alcaide has been in the business for twenty years, including spending time shooting photographs for graphic design and advertising markets in Mexico.  These days he is known best for the annual reports and product shots he does.  However, that is by no means all he does; his experience also lies in lifestyle and he has been to many different locations — and shot them, of course.

The photographer is not only well traveled but also well educated, having gone to school both in Mexico and in England.  He can speak his native Spanish, French, and English fluidly.

But that does not say enough about Alcaide’s photography, with is surreal and evocative and poignant, all at the same time.  It takes something you know — a pair of legs and feet walking across the floor, a figure on the stairs, a man walking down the hall — and turns it into something which belongs in a dreamscape.

Here, the busy business man is turned into a dreamy figure, plotting novels and poems and who knows what else, trapped for an eternal moment in time.
