Miguel Trillo in Views and Glances (1980-2020), Photographic Encounters of Gijón, Barjola Museum

Like the nineteenth-century photo albums that showed the European bourgeoisie what the inhabitants of foreign countries were like, Miguel Trillo has formed a corpus of images that for the last four decades has collected what the young people of all kinds of urban tribes in Madrid, New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Seoul and Kuala Lumpur are like. An entomologist who has been collecting weirdos since he started going to concerts in the Spanish capital in the mid-seventies, with the Movida on the verge of exploding. Trillo, 69, born in Jimena de la Frontera (Cádiz), receives this weekend a tribute in the 19th edition of the Photographic Encounters of Gijón.

The exhibition can be visited from November 25 to December 31, 2022 at the Barjola Museum in Gijon.
