The Poetics Of Darkness Captured By Laia Gutiérrez

Barcelona-based photographer and artist Laia Gutiérrez explores themes of drifting and restlessness in poetic, melancholic tones.

“It’s about listening to hidden secrets […] and letting the observers reveal their own emotions.” Gutiérrez’s ‘Zugunruhe‘ series casts an eye over dramatic, isolated landscapes, “diving into a world of exploration where identity is forged in the act of migrating.” In a statement about her work, the photographer states, “It’s about listening hidden secrets […] and letting the observers reveal their own emotions.” Gutiérrez studied Fine Arts at the University of Barcelona while working as a graphic designer, and now centers her artistic practice around photography, fine art and design.
