Fontcuberta, Joan

Joan Fontcuberta is a contemporary Spanish photographer of Catalan origin. A lover of fake and staged photographs, who uses humor to denounce the manipulation hidden under the images. " Images are our memory, our imagination, our unconscious " In his pictures, Joan Fontcuberta stages images that mimic scientific approaches, journalistic reports, religious narratives, museum speeches ... except that everything is fake. His works are exhibited at the MoMA in New York, at the Georges Pompidou National Center for Art and Culture in Paris. His award-winning work can boast of the Hasselblad Prize for Photography (2013), among others. Photo: © self-portrait
