© Portrait by Nani Gutiérrez

Cristina De Middel is a photographer whose work investigates photography’s ambiguous relationship to truth. She skillfully blends documentary and conceptual photographic practices to build a better understanding of the subject she approaches.


Her selection of subjects responds to the urgency of completing the portrait of the world we live in, or re-launching the debate taking the potential of photography as the raw material for her story-telling.


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.


De Middel continuously produces new bodies of work


Other fine art photography books she has published include the series This is what hatred did (2014), Sharkification (2015) and Jan Mayen (2015), to name a few...


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.
