Cristina de Middel
Cristina de Middel is an award winning Spanish-born photographer who uses her camera to construct elaborate fictional worlds. Her work weaves together fact and fiction in a way that makes us question the so-called ‘truths’ that we receive via the media. We particularly enjoy the fusion of myth and fact in the artist’s ‘Afronauts’ project, a series of fascinating images inspired by a Zambian space programme that never came to fruition.…Show more Cristina has studied Fine Arts, Photography and Photojournalism at universities in Spain and the US. While working for a small, local Spanish newspaper, she began to reflect on factual storytelling and its construction of truth. “It’s not that I ran away from truth, it was the language of truth that disappointed me,” Cristina explains. “If you master the language of truth, you can really build a story that looks totally real.”
The artist has exhibited her work across the globe at galleries and museums in the UK, the US and Europe. Her photographs have also been featured at photo festivals in Guatemala and Nigeria.Show less
