Ink injection on cotton paper.

The series "Scenarios, desolated images quoting cinematographic pictures" stems from an investigation of approximately two years which had as its starting point working mise-en-scène with the use of the light painting technique with led lights.

The influence of cinema in Alexis' work is exposed through this series. This intervention is made by using indoor and outdoor spaces in relation with objects that give meaning to the image and relate to each portrait through their interaction.

The people are transformed into characters located in everyday places that go unnoticed before the change in the city. The portrayed are always acting in sorts with the gaze out of the frame where the viewer cannot access; this is where a strong element of tension appears.

The work in its initial stage began with much experimentation within the photographic language, passing from a digital process to an analog one. The digital media had a leading role in this work because of the immediacy of the image and for allowing the artist to make corrections at the same time. Finally through a so-called "domination" of the technique to the analog format, it was turned into a non-instant photography in comparison with the digital. Thanks to this, the transition to analogue emerges as a new experimentation.

The lighting’s development in the exposure time of the shutter in the space is what makes the photography a real image since it takes place in real time.
