Goria Oyarzabal is a Spanish photographer, director and teacher.
Her work is mostly centered around the African continent (she herself has lived 3 years in Mail), the marks of colonization and the history of decolonization, as well as the place of women in African societies.

Then in 2019 she wins the "Prix du Livre Images Vevey 2019/2020", which in turn allows her the publication of her second photobook "Woman Go No'Gree" (Editorial RM / Images Vevey, 2020) along with an exhitibiton during the "Images Vevey" festival in Switzerland.
In December 2020, the book "Woman Go No'Gree" is awarded the "Book of the Year" award by Paris Photo & Aperture Foundation in collaboration with Delpire & Co.
