This week’s interview is with Javier Molina, where we focus on his dark imaginings. Javier was born in La Paz, Bolivia and has lived in London for the past 47 years. He has been taking photographs since 1969, on and off; sometimes earning his living through photography. It is only in the past seven years that he has allowed himself the title of Photographer.
Javier’s composite images, particularly those from his ‘Imaginations’ series, are surreal journeys into his psyche. The artworks lean towards the darker side, with self-expressive and philosophical narratives; often using religious and mythological references, and presented in visceral colours and heavy use of textures.
