Award-winning Spanish photographer José A. Gallego creates stunning images that entrance us through their technical virtuosity and timeless themes. With his modern sense for composition combined with sensitivity for lighting that nods to the great Spanish Baroque painters, Gallego crafts incredible portraits of exotic animals, lonesome vistas, and intricate scenes of urbanity. Employing high contrast lighting, forms seem to protrude from the abyss, focusing our attention on the fine articulation of detail captured by Gallego’s adept camera. Many of his photographs convey a sense of isolation or loneliness.
Gallego is an active professor and has exhibited his photographs frequently throughout Spain and in the United States. His works have appeared in major publications such as National Geographic, El Pais, and Digital Photo.
