Álvaro Trincado was born in A Coruña, Spain, in the year 1980. Since he was very young, he shows interest in photography thanks to his father's love, increasing after the gift of his first camera from his grandparents. One of the first points of inflection in its development occurs with 15 years, when studying an academic course in the United States. There he is part of the photographic group of the institute, where he participates actively in the photographic documentation, development and edition of the center's yearbook. On his return to Spain he gets his first SLR camera and continues to cultivate his hobby. Among some of its referents, there are photographers such as: Harry Callahan, Robert Adams or Richard Misrach.
Due to the family influence of his father, with a more engineering profile, and of his mother, with a more humanistic and artistic one, he decides to study industrial design without neglecting photography, continuing his training in a self-taught way and through specific workshops .
In his professional career, he specializes in furniture development and with his first salary he buys a digital camera, thus beginning a new stage that he combines with his profession. In 2007 he is selected for the contest of emerging young people of the community of Galicia, the region of Spain where he resides. In 2011 he made his first individual exhibition with what would be the basis of his later series "Composite Habitats".
As a designer, he starts directing collections development projects, controlling the entire design process. These personal and professional influences lead him to reflect on our links with the places and people around us. It takes reference to personal behaviors and the ability of the human being to relate, adapt or transform their habitat and use it as a starting point to materialize their view of the environment they occupy.
In 2017 he decides to create his website and begins to give more visibility to his projects. He currently resides in Oleiros, Spain, where he continues to work as a designer and continues to develop as a photographer.
