Lucía Herrero studied Architecture, Photography and Physical Theater. The education on these three branches of art and her experiences travelling the world has shaped Lucia as the artist she is now.
Her photographic work has won international prizes and her style in documentary/art photography has interested curators and publishers from all over the world. Lucia’s images are exhibited internationally in museums, galleries and photography festivals.
Over the last years she has developed an approach to documentary photography called by her Antropología Fantástica. It is a mixture between social science and artistic intervention. She portraits people and cultures with both drama and fantasy elements.
On each of her essays there is a social analysis but also a research and reflexion on visual expression and the different conceptual approaches to build stories.
Parallel to the production of creative work, Lucia teaches advanced lighting techniques and visual language.
She has completed assignments and published for TIME magazine, GEO, The Spiegel, De Volkskrant, Iodonna, XL Semanal, WeltN24, El Periódico, Azart.
Her work has been shown in Kiyosato museum of photographic arts and Tokyo Photographic Art Museum (Japan), Rencontres d’Arles (France), Tagomago gallery (Barcelona), Somerset House (London), Central Exhibition Hall Menege (Saint Petersburg), White Box gallery (Kuala Lumpur), Fundacion Mpfre (Madrid), Festival Fotolegendo (Rome), Hot Shoe gallery (London), Splashlight Studios (NY), Encontros da imagem (Portugal), Kaunas Photo festival (Lithuania), SIPF- International Photo Festival (Singapore ) among others.
Her last series, “Reindeer-man”, just won the Grand Prize at Kuala Lumpur International Portraits Photoawards 2018.
Some of her projects are “Tribes”, “Species”, “Equation”, “PORC no GRAPHIC”, “Reindeer-Man” and “Tribute to bata”.
