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 was born in Alcalá de Guadaira (Sevilla, Spain) in 1970. When he was 14 years old he moved to Madrid, where he is still living, although he moved temporarily to Germany and Barcelona. He discovered photography when he was 17 years old, and it became the centre of his professional activity. Books occupy a prominent position in his production. Infinito —published originally in 2000— stands out among the many monographs he has released. His work has been exhibited in a number of places since 1993 and he has tried different formats such as projections or the internet as alternatives to the exhibition rooms. He considers photography as a medium capable of reinventing reality, and he means to find a visual poetry based in the mysterious connections that hide in daily matters.
