Scarce early book from García Alix, who was one of the main chroniclers of La Movida Madrileña as well as various outsider tribes.
In this book, García Alix stands directly in front of these women, eye to eye. The photographer and the subjects are as close as friends, lovers, or confidents. A portfolio of amazing photographs and special women, anonymous or not: Olvido (Alaska), Rossy de Palma, Inés Sastre... Images of a wide range of women that form a collection of black and white intimate portraits with sense of atmosphere.
The concept of a self-portrait/portrait is wide and it encompasses a great part of his work, a work that has all marks of a punk style or punk photography that emerged in the late 70s up close and very personal, intimate without being intrusive.
This special book, includes a 1990/91 calendar with a phone notebook in the last pages.
