Alvaro was born in Madrid and has been living in Italy since 2004. He studied German Philology in the “UCM” of Madrid and “Otto Friedrich” of Bamberg (Germany) and Sociology in the “Università D’Annunzio” of Chieti (Italy). He focuses on the idea that the weave of the world comes from relational processes (the idea that reality is less solid than it appears). He is therefore interested in the narrative nature of identity seen as an emerging process and of the individual that exists as a relational pattern. Alvaro’s work has been exhibited in festivals and galleries in Arles, Rome, Barcelona, Madrid, London and New York and his clients and publications include L’Espresso, Newsweek, Playboy, Internazionale, Vanity Fair, New York Times, Das Magazin, El Periódico, Glamour, The Fader, Riders, Bulletin, Altair, NZZ, DLaRepubblica, IL Magazine, Lens (New York Times), British Journal of Photography, GUP.
He won the PHotoEspaña OjodePez Human Values Award, British Journal of Photography Award, Viewbook Photostory Contest, Fotocanal, and finalist in the Voies Off Arles, Leica Oskar Barnack Award and Sony Award.
