Cristina de Middel
Photographer, Spain
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. After a 10 year career as a photojournalist, Cristina stepped outside of the straight documentary gaze and produced the acclaimed series “The Afronauts” (2012), which explored the history of a failed space program in Zambia in the 1960s through staged reenactments of obscure narratives that challenged the traditional depiction of the African continent. De Middel continuously produces new bodies of work. The series This is what hatred did (2014), Sharkification (2015) and Jan Mayen (2015), to name a few examples were all published as books in 2015. De Middel’s work has received numerous awards in both the editorial and the artistic field, including PhotoFolio Arles 2012, Finalist of the Deutsche Börse Prize, and the Infinity Award from the International Center of Photography in New York. Cristina became a Magnum nominee in 2017 and 2018 is in charge of PHotoESPAÑA carte blanche curating five exhibitions
