Olga de la Iglesia is an artist and photographer from Barcelona, Spain,
whose work explores the boundaries between fashion and
documentary photography. She explores the narrative possibilities of visual analogies between colors and shapes in a photography that seems to follow the principles of painting where within the four lines of a frame she conveys the exact quantity of shapes, colors, and textures.
She uses fashion photography to create narratives that analyze
and embrace the structures of diverse human societies.
Olga is inspired by humans and by everything we’ve been creating around us: from the tools and the objects we use everyday to the spaces where we stand and live.
Her work is created almost solely on analogue format including 35mm and 120 film with it being featured in international publications and media.
2015 - 2017 De la Iglesia also founded Refresco Caribe, a design and art project, where she worked hand in hand with artisans in the Dominican Republic, Haiti and Mexico. Refresco was
about promoting cultural exchange through each piece of art with the intention of generating discussions in a language that did not depend on words and that reflected and that reflected the tropical essence of these places.
In 2018 Olga moved to NY where she started to be represented by Society Management, and where she lived until 2020, when the pandemic started he moved back to Barcelona to be close to her family and friends in these intense and weird times.
