Cristina de Middel is a Spanish 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. After a 10 year career as a photojournalist and humanitarian photographer, de Middel stepped outside of the photojournalistic gaze. Now with more than 13 books published, including the critically acclaimed series The Afronauts in 2012, De Middel has exhibited extensively internationally and has received numerous awards and nominations, including PhotoFolio Arles 2012, the Deutsche Börse Prize, the Infinity Award from the International Center of Photography in New York and the Spanish National Award in Photography. Cristina de Middel is a Magnum Associate and lives and works between Mexico and Brazil.
In light of this unprecedented and challenging time, The Photographers' Gallery remains committed to its community of photographers and artists, freelance staff, and those involved in our youth programmes. Given the varying pressures some individuals may be facing, we are introducing the virtual ticket, asking people to pay what they can.
