Tales of a City II – Seigar

“Tales of a City II” is an urban series made of individual tales from London, 2017. Each image captures a photo-narrative. It is a set of street photography. Most of them are spontaneous instants. They are linked because of the saturated colors, details and free compositions, far from rules. It is a continuation of a group of photos taken in 2014. This year, I went back to my favorite city and I realized I have captured the same motifs and elements that I took in the previous trip. In these tales, you find reflections, shop windows, plastic people, messages, words, abandoned objects, lines, geometry, shadows, lights, food and people. This is London for me. The old city becomes young in my tales; this is how I look at it. There is always something unexpected going on and here you have the proofs. Link to the full project:

Artist Statement: Seigar is an English philologist, a highschool teacher, and a photographer. His love for reflections, saturated colors and religious icons merge with his passion for pop culture and show up in surprising ways in his pictures.

Travelling is his inspiration. However, he tries to show more than mere postcards from his visits, creating a continuous narrative from his trips. His three most ambitious projects so far are “Plastic People”, a study on anthropology and sociology that focuses on the humanization of mannequins, “Response to Ceal Floyer for the Summer Exhibition” a conceptual work that understands art as a form of communication, and “Tales of a City”, an ongoing photo-narrative project in London. SEIGAR also writes for The Cultural Magazine (Spain) about photography and for Memoir Mixtapes about music (L.A.).
