Laia Gutiérrez is a photographer and visual artist from Barcelona. She studied Fine Arts in the University of Barcelona while pushing her photographic practice forward.
The focus of Gutiérrez’s photographs lies within exposing hidden and complex aspects of human condition. She uses mostly landscape and isolated elements, sometimes combined with postproduction effects to create singular projects to dive in. Timeless aspects shaped into contemporary images.
Her practice is far away from literalness, as she understands photography as a metaphorical process, closer to poetry. A place to get lost and be inspired by the images.
Her work is built in a place where middle gray is darker, where tension comes out of a latent calm. Most of her series show inevitably uncanny atmospheres, as she tries to reveal what at first sight can be plain but catches an underworld inside.
