This book includes a selection of slides created between 1978 and 1983. They are color images, reflecting the same obsessions that García-Alix portrays in his black-and-white photos.
It also includes a text, extracted from a conversation between Mireia Sentís, José Luis Gallero and Alberto García-Alix, in which the photographer tells what photography means in his life.

In the prologue to this book, Mireia Sentís and José Luis Gallero point out how surprising it is to see the powerful sense of color that an emblematic creator of black and white photography such as Alix has.
