For the past two decades, Txema Salvans (1971, Barcelona) has developed a documentary and artistic approach outside the standard photojournalist platforms, including photoessay.
Joan Fontcuberta has described his work as a “balancing critical thinking with a poetic sense of humour”. Contemporary Spanish chronicler, his projects become established working most of the time on book format. His first book Nice To Meet You (ACTAR, 2005) received the 2005 Photo España award for best photobook. The Waiting Game (RM, 2013) was awarded the best Iberoamerican Photobook (2012).
My Kingdom was published in 2018 (MACK, 2018), as well as the second part of The Waiting Game (RM, 2018). Perfect Day (MACK, 2020) is the latest project published at the height of the pandemic.
