I am a photojournalist working on both daily news and long term projects. Based in Barcelona, I specialize in the Catalonia conflict and have been photographing the “separatist process” for the past 5 years. For the past year, I have been working on a long term project about the effects of the imprisonment of Jordi Cuixart, Catalan social leader, on his family and their lives. I hope to move beyond the surface level photographs of the conflict to share a more emotional and personal side of the conflict. This project was a finalist for the Connecta’t award for you g photojournalists. I have worked at multiple newspapers in Catalonia including “Ara” and “El periódico de Cataluña”.
I have a degree in Art and Design and a postgraduate degree in Photojournalism from the Universitat Autónoma de Barcelona. I am currently completing a specialization in photojournalism at the photographic studies institute of Catalonia.
