Biography

Olimax has worked in photography and design since the early 1980's. His portraits and reportage have been featured in such publications as The Face, ID, Time Out, Actuel, Libération, American Harpers, The British Journal of Photography, Sky and The Guardian.

In the last few years he has developed the art of the Mass Portraiture Event, at which at up to 100 photographic portraits are taken over the course of a single day, around a given theme, at a staged event which becomes, in itself, a performance with music, art, and a general festival atmosphere.

He has published several books, Possession 78, Olimax Condensed Alphabet Shoot, PortrATE, and All i Oli: A Homage to Catalunya which were the basis for solo exhibitions in London and Barcelona.
