Team Loupe is a series of interviews with the photographers behind Loupe Magazine.
Interview by Harry Flook –
Álvaro Martínez García studied journalism in Spain, before a move to photography and England. His masters project is shaping up to be an offbeat response to his family archive, uncovering the story of Álvaro’s grandfather, a man with Spain’s most common surname, before he is lost to anonymity. García García is a heartfelt plea for us all to look closer to home and history. As Álvaro nears the end of his masters study, we discuss the development of his photographic practice, his view on changing family archives, and his plans for the near future.
