Up and Coming: Lourdes Cabrera

Faces and bodies wander in an atmosphere of mystery and fragility without offering a clear message and as such, preserving the subjectivity of the viewer. I push my models to surrender their true selves, drawing looks from them to transmit the emotional deterioration of my characters and reveal the insinuations and identities that proceed from my memories and my subconscious.

After graduating in Biology Lourdes completed a Masters in Photography at EFTI in Madrid. She has worked as an assistant for fashion, advertisement and signature photographers such as Jesús Alonso, Eugenio Recuenco, Adrian Tyler, Stefania Paparelli, Esperanza Moyá, Alique, Rubén Vega, Daniel Plá, Sara Zorraquino, Pedro Vikingo and Rafa Gallar.

Her pictures have been published in El País Semanal, Rock de Luxe, Shots Magazine, and 10x15Blog. She also gives workshops at the Casa Encendida and the European Institute of Design in Madrid. In 2009, Lourdes was shortlisted at PhotoEspaña and took part in their collective exhibition.
