Sergio Lardiez (Madrid, 1984), after positioning himself as a photographer within the national scene thanks to his actor portrait work, is currently focused on the artistic side of photography. His new line of work goes beyond aesthetics itself, resulting in a work of heartbreaking beauty.
As a committed artist that he is, he has participated with several NGOs in solidarity projects of a social nature. With the exhibition “Libres” (2018) hosted by the Modus Operandi Gallery in Madrid, it supported the “Safe in Nairobi” project of the NGO “Save a Girl Save a Generation”, to raise funds in the fight against female genital mutilation, the forced marriages and any type of violence against women. With "Tumani" (2020) he focuses on Africa, on the most vulnerable, focusing on the gaze of children as a link and a reflection of purity, true happiness and also injustice.
He has participated in an international art fair such as JUSTLX (Lisbon, 2019) by the Modus Operandi Gallery (Madrid) and more recently, during the confinement and the health crisis, in the Off de Photo España 2020, with the project “La molded skin ”, where he reflects, with the female figure as the protagonist, on the resilience and capacity of the human being to face adversity.
Currently, among other projects, he has just presented, together with Julieta Toribio, the exhibition "Where was dark", which is hosted by the Modus Operandi Gallery (Madrid) and whose proceeds will go to the NGO Save a girl Save a Generation.
