My name is Laura, and I was born in a small Catalonia town in 1995. I define myself as a global communicator and storyteller, someone who’s passionate about visual content. My relationship with photography started as a kid, my parents are the ones who instilled in me the passion to explore the world and capture life. My mission as an artist is to reach people, to talk to them through my pictures. I want them to experience the uniqueness of each moment.

I usually photograph landscapes and people, which is what I enjoy the most. For me, it is important to be ethical and respectful with the people and the environment I photograph. I never pay the models or go to upscale places, I find the beauty in everyday life. I’d say North Vietnam is my favorite place in the world right now. My favorite pictures are undoubtably from this country. I had an incredible moment and grew up a lot during that trip, which lasted 4 months. I feel that traveling alone and slowly is the perfect combination to get inspired and really get the essence of each place and moment.

The pandemic hasn’t been easy for the long-term travelers, but like everybody, I’m evolving to adapt to these new circumstances. Right now, I’ve established back to my hometown and I work as an instructor and helping entities to build brand awareness and identity online.

Bruma

2019: Western Australia, Australia

The turquoise color of this water caught me as soon as I saw it. The sea was rough. The water was breaking intensively on the rocks. I could have been watching that spectacle of nature for hours if it weren’t for the sea mist rising so strongly that it almost got me soaked. I was obsessed with capturing the essence of the movement. When the lines of the sea lined up with the rocks, I saw the perfect moment, to photograph the infinite shapes forming on top of that turquoise sea.

Misty

2020: San Miguel del Lillo, Spain

Waking up early is always rewarding. You can have a moment with different people or places at any other time. The spaces speak and convey different sensations, depending on the time and season in which you visit them. On this cold morning of August, I captured a wonderful essence: mystical, silent with a special strength.

Blank

2020: Myanmar

Myanmar is a special country. They are still very religious, and their country is full of remote temples. I saw a photo of this temple in a restaurant, so I asked where it was and how I could get there. It took me more than 2 hours to do 40km on a narrow but charming road. When I arrived in bad weather, a gray day. Walking around the temple barefoot, I realized that if I exposed the photograph in such a way that the gray sky became white, it would truly be more harmonious than ever. I was getting ready to take the photo, and someone rang the bell of the tower. Some birds flew, et voilà, the blank picture.

Deep down eatrh

2017: Arizona, United States

A slot canyon is a long, narrow, deep and tortuous channel with steep sides, curvy corridors and rooms. Inside the canyons, the rocks are eroded following the movement of the wind and water. The result are huge wavy sandstone walls that made me believe I was into a parallel world. The way they reflect light it’s unique, and they change the way you perceive their color during the day. It’s absolutely magical, being deep down earth.

Alone

2018: Perth, Australia

I was riding a bicycle next to Swan river, in a super well-maintained bike path. I was heading to my brother’s home, as the sun had set, and dusk was settling over the ocean. It was a calm day. I saw a lot of tourists taking selfies and doing weird poses in front of this blue house, and I stopped. I observed them, they were so busy photographing themselves that they barely paid attention to the tranquility which that place was requiring. I waited until most of them left, and I admired quietly the beauty of the place. Soon there seemed to be a sense of calm and serenity in the city

Boni

2020: Indonesia

Boni is an orangutan who was once kept illegally as a pet. His owner kept him in a cage and made him wipe the floor. I had the opportunity to meet him when I went to Java Island a rescue center as a volunteer. He was shy and quiet. It was quite hard at the begging because, when you made eye contact with him, he looked somewhere else or he covered his eyes with his hands. After a few days of photographing him and providing him food, he felt more comfortable and let me finally took this picture.

Mingled

2019: Chile

This was a windy day near San Pedro de Atacama. I was not in my best mood… my bag, containing my passport, my computer and my lucky charm where stolen the day before. I was sitting in the top of a small mountain, thinking about how would I continue? Where would I get the strength from? All of a sudden, a vicuña, all alone, came right in front of me and started drinking water from an incredibly blue river. I then realized how beautiful was the landscape in front of me. I didn’t even notice as I was so abstracted with my thoughts. I couldn’t stop smiling, while I was also recognizing that no matter what, I was extremely fortunate.

Early Morning

2020: Vietnam

There is a traditional fish market in Mui Ne, to sell fresh fish to the locals and nearby restaurants. It starts when it’s still dark, when the boats start to return to the coast. I grabbed my bike around 5.30 am and drove for about 10 minutes. When I arrived at dawn, the market was in a bustle. I believe there were only 2 tourists. I walked around the beach full of ladies trying to get the best deal. Furthermore, I saw a group of women sitting that were picking the crawfish that had been caught in the net. I sat there with them, and stayed there for about 10 minutes, just enjoying their dexterity.

Painter on art

2020: Vietnam

I remember this day really well. It was a cloudy day, and I was riding my motorbike through the amazing landscapes of Ha Giang, in North Vietnam. Suddenly I was a painter next to the road, in front of those astonishing mountains. Even I just saw it for a second, I knew it was the perfect picture. I was going too fast to stop, so I had wait until the next turn, and go back. He obviously noticed when I stopped, surprisingly it’s not a very busy road. He was a young American, Alex, that had moved to Vietnam to live from painting. We talked for a couple of hours and then he asked me to take some pictures of him. Suddenly the sky opened, and some sun rays allowed me to photograph the painter painting.
