David Jiménez presents the second edition of Infinito, considered one of the pioneering Spanish photobooks published originally in the year 2000. The release of this work, highlighted in several prestigious publications such as The Photobook: A History by Martin Parr and Gerry Badger, was a source of inspiration for many photographers from Spain and abroad. It is considered a milestone in the history of Spanish photobooks due to its fragmented narrative, its book-object nature and its capacity to generate multiple readings.
Although this second edition, produced as a self-publication by the author himself, shows an almost literal respect to the original, it also presents some variations. In addition to containing four different images, the new edition is made on an offset paper that gives it an updated look closer to the author’s original desire.
David Jiménez is an artist photographer born in Seville, Spain, 1970; he is currently based in Madrid. His visual proposal brings us up close to the mystery encompassing the everyday, the invisible relationships that operate secretly in that which we find familiar. Frequently his works hold partially hidden keys which invite viewers to construct their own interpretation. In the form of books, exhibits and audiovisual screenings, they have been shown in numerous venues in Spain and abroad, and are part of numerous public and private collections. He won the award for Best New Photographer at PHotoEspaña 99 and the Arts Award of the City of Madrid in 2008. To date, he has published five monographic books.
