Exhibition dedicated to Cristina de Middel, National Photography Award 2017, which brings together three of her photographic projects: Jan Mayen, Cucurrucucú y Aleatoris Vulgaris.
Cristina de Middel (b.Alicante, Spain 1975) is a photographer whose work investigates photography’s ambiguous relationship to truth. Blending documentary and conceptual photographic practices, she plays with reconstructions and archetypes that blur the border between reality and fiction. De Middel’s work shows that fiction can serve as the subject of photography just as well as facts can, highlighting that our expectation that photography must always make reference to reality is flawed.
De Middel has exhibited extensively internationally and has received numerous awards and nominations, including PhotoFolio Arles 2012, the Deutsche Börse Prize, POPCAP’ 13, and the Infinity Award from the International Center of Photography in New York.
