DE MIDDEL, Cristina

2013-MIDDEL-portrait-webBorn in Spain in 1975.

Lives and works in London.

Cristina De Middel has been working for different newspapers in Spain and with NGO’s such as Doctors Without Borders or the Spanish Red Cross for more than 8 years .

She combines her strictly documentary assignments with more personal projects that have been awarded and exhibited in several occasions (incuding PhotoFolio Arles 2012, Deutsche Börse Prize and the Infinty Award from the ICP in New York).

This B-side of Cristina’s work deliberately asks the audience to question the language and the veracity of photography as a document, and plays with reconstructions or archetypes that blur the border between reality and fiction.

Cristina De Middel presented her work at the Rencontres d’Arles in 2013, with her series The Afronauts, at the Cloître St Trophime.
