Appreciation towards  Jey Alonso for providing the following description:

Jey Alonso是一位年轻的建筑师和摄影师,擅长极简和超现实主义的建筑设计,并于西班牙和丹麦的高校获得多个硕士学位。Jey Alonso通过他的摄影作品展示了他对世界的看法。2015年,他在巴塞罗那“Artevistas”画廊举办的第二届New Talent Edition大赛中获奖,并受邀展出了自己的4幅作品。

Jey Alonso is a young architect and photographer specialized in minimalist / surrealist architecture. He studied architecture degree and two master’s degree in Spain and Denmark. Jey Alonso shows his vision of the world through his photographs. This vision begins in 2015, when he is awarded in the II New Talent Edition contest held by the “Artevistas Gallery” gallery in Barcelona and he is invited to exhibit 4 photographic works in a group exhibition.








Jey reviews the known and not-so-known architectural elements to give them saturated colors different from the reality. His works are based on the decontextualization of the photographed and the will to highlight urban structures that for most people go unnoticed in a everyday routine. It is a surreal interpretation of the city and of the sky, of how our urban horizon dialogues day by day with us and to what extent it serves as a canvas for art and for surprising us.






Jey Alonso在他的摄影作品中引入了建筑师Peter Eisenman的“重新定位”概念:即将观察者从建筑及其环境中抽离,从而产生一种与现实生活相背离的回归感。这种超现实的境况使拍摄对象变得更为真实,因为创作者在其中设定了一个城市环境中不曾拥有的“主角”。Jey的照片通过运用对比和把相似城市元素之间的距离拉开的“格式塔法则”,来重新定义了现实。

Jey Alonso introduces in his photos the concept of “relocating to locate” the architect Peter Eisenman to displace the observer from the building and its context generating a departure from real life to return. This generates a totally new and surreal situation that makes the photographed object more real due to it gives the protagonism it did not have in the urban context. Jey Alonso’s photographs rediscover reality by playing the “laws of the Gestalt” by using contrast and making distance between similar urban elements.




他一直对幕后工作充满热情,把摄影看作是一门学科而不仅仅是耐心等待拍摄时机的到来。自2014年以来,Jey一直与Alcala de Henares大学、Anton Martin Market或艺术画廊等不媒体合作,并于Artsy网站举办了独家在线展览。

He has always been passionate about being behind the camera and thinks of photography as a discipline than needs patience in which you have to wait for the right moment to freeze what you are looking for. Jey has participated in group exhibitions since 2014 in collaboration with different media such as the Alcalá de Henares University, the Antón Martín Market or art galleries, as well as exclusive online exhibitions on the Artsy website.





The artist is committed to an artistic photography not limited to reflect the real, in which there is a symbiosis between the photo retouching, the composition, the surrealist colors and the reality portrayed by the photographer. This approach generates what Robert Venturi defines as “juxtaposed contradiction” that brings up the aesthetic and poetic values ​​of each urban structure.




2015年底,他组织并开幕了迄今为止最大的个人展览“极简主义客观性”。该展览为期5个月,于马德里市的三个不同地点举行。2019年,他又组织了一次名为“极简主义客观性II”的单日快速展览。从今年开始,Jey Alonso分别被Artig、 1stDibs、Saisho Art以及Galería Artevistas美术馆选为永久合作艺术家。此外,他还建立并开设了自己的网站和在线摄影作品店。




At the end of 2015, he organizes and inaugurates what will be his biggest individual exhibition so far, with a duration of 5 months in three different places in the city of Madrid: “The Minimalist Objectivity” is an exhibition that draws the profile of Jey Alonso as a surrealist-minimalist photographer through a set that included more than 30 works. Four years later, he organized a one-day Fast Expo called “The Minimalist Objectivity II”. Jey Alonso currently collaborates as a permanent artist in the art galleries “Artig Gallery”, “1stDibs” and “Saisho Art” since 2019 and “Galería Artevistas” since 2015. In addition, in 2019 he founded and opened his website and online photography shop: where he exposes his latest creations.
