Biography

 

He studied at the School of Art ID·Arte of the Higher University of Design in Euskadi (Spain) and at the University of Arts in Vilnnius (Lithuania).

As a large part of the new European approach to photography, his work has been recognized by various public and private institutions, such as the Solomon R. Guggenheim (USA), the Sasakawa Foundation (Japan & Scandinavia) and Futures Photography (European Creative Program).

Gorospe has exhibited in several countries such as Spain, Portugal, Italy, France, Germany, UK, Slovakia, Norway, Russia and Singapore. Among which, he has participated in group and individual exhibitions at leading Art Institutions such as el Cent-Quatre in Paris, the Mattatoio Museum in Rome, the Nogueira da Silva Museum in Portugal, the Circulo de Bellas Artes in Madrid or the Kunstnernes Hus in Oslo.

Part of his most relevant work focuses on the study and approach to the anthropized landscape. Developed several series on this theme such as Polished Cities (2018, in process), Noraezean (2020), Metropolis (2018-2019) or Environments (2014-2016).

In recent years, he began to carry out various public installation works, such as his last intervention commissioned by the Asker City Council (Norway) “The Many Skies”.

Gorospe combines his work as an artist with the study and understanding of the image from a theoretical point of view, where he develops as a curator several artistic projects and the direction of photography festivals.

Lives and works between Spain and Norway.
