A scathing look at the world of art and creation, with a touch of humor and deeply humanistic, halfway between travel stories and autobiographical fiction, this is a story about friendship, love and family, which explores the meaning of maturity, ambition and creative processes, to become a profound tribute to anonymous artists. Las fotos que nunca hice (The Photos I Never Took) narrates over four decades the life of Carlos, an amateur photographer from Barcelona, sensitive, insecure and slightly hypochondriac, and the circumstances that will push him to face his fears in order to pursue his dreams. He is accompanied by his partner Alice, his two daughters Laila and Pixie, and his friends: Pablo, a successful graphic designer, Juanma, a singer with stage fright, and Luz, an Argentinian painter, seriously ill.
Relation of the novel to the artist’s practice
The novel is an independent work in itself but closely related to the whole of Alex Llovet's work, in that it is based on autobiographical facts that deal with some of the same themes found in his photobooks and songs.
