Over the last ten years, Alex Llovet's work has been structured around two main themes: identity and memory. Using the photobook format to conceptualise and present his projects increasingly focused on his immediate environment -his partner, his daughters and the territory he inhabits-, he has constructed his own universe in which the photographic document and the poetic image constantly intertwine and question each other.
Is it possible to long for something that is still happening? This is the starting point of Summer's Almost Gone, one hundred images taken during the summers of 2016 to 2021, in different places in England and Spain, which make up his own unique family album of the summer holidays.
During these periods of contact with nature, synonymous with freedom, discovery and play, but also with challenges, growth and confrontation with one's own ghosts, Llovet appeals to the awareness of the fugacity of life while questioning the limitations of photographic practice in the face of the frustration of not being able to be both actor and spectator at the same time.
