Antton Elizegi Beloki’s (Lasarte, 1938) passion for photography began at Laborde Brothers business in Andoain, at the same time as he entered into the world of industry, machine tools and design, all of which will later become fundamentals in his professional trajectory.

The photographic work of Elizegi is intimately linked to Nature: innermost and picturesque landscapes, tree trunks, branches, grass metas, uninhabited farmhouses and various architectonic structures.

He always worked in series, letting himself go into diverse experimentations that allowed him to explore and search different artistic possibilities in means of representation, as we see in his most relevant series over his trajectory.

Antton Elizegi’s style is based on a deep, contrast of black and white, where the focus is the shape, lights and shadows, in which Antton searched for strong compositions and constructions.

His photographs gather changes, evolution and the great transformation of our rural and urban scopes in the last five decades.
