CRISTINA DE MIDDEL
(texte en anglais)
Born in 1975 in Spain, lives and work in Uruapan, Mexico.
Cristina De Middel is a photographer whose work investigates photography’s ambiguous relationship to truth. Blending documentary and conceptual photographic practices, she plays with reconstructions and archetypes in order to build a more layered understanding of the subject she approaches.
From the premise that the description of the world provided by mass media is reducing the real understanding of the world we live in, her selection of subjects responds to the urgency of completing the portrait or re-launching the debate taking the potential of photography as the raw material for her story-telling.
Cristina De Middel is represented by Juana de Aizpuru Gallery and Magnum Gallery.
