One of the most influential and important photographic artists of the 21st century, Roger Ballen’s photographs span over forty years. His strange and extreme works confront the viewer and challenge them to come with him on a journey into their own minds as he explores the deeper recesses of his own.
Roger Ballen was born in New York in 1950 but for over 30 years he has lived and worked in South Africa. His work as a geologist took him out into the countryside and led him to take up his camera and explore the hidden world of small South African towns

INZAJEANO LATIF holds a BA and MA in Photography from Middlesex University, London, UK. He is most often described as a ‘portrait photographer who engages with people on the fringes of society,’ choosing to expose their intimate interactions with their environments, and looking at how those environments shape them. For Latif, photography opens up a brave new world of exposure and insight in ways that words often fail to do. His work has been exhibited widely, most notably at the National Portrait Gallery in London (2009), where his image ‘Female Boxer No. 3’ was the signature piece of the show. He has also exhibited at the Jerwood Space (London); the Host Gallery (London); the Getty Gallery (London) and the Empire Gallery (London), and his work has been part of the Tim Andrews group show. His projects, ‘The Pursuit of Happiness’ and ‘Al-Ghurba (The Exile)’ have been exhibited in China and the US respectively, and a recent project, ‘Girls’ has been exhibited in Eastern Europe. He has had a solo show at the Arab–British Centre in the UK and has been finalist in numerous prestigious photography competitions. More recently Inzajeano has had two group shows and one solo show in Edinburgh, been commissioned by Time magazine, been a finalist in the Portrait of Britain award and the esteemed Fotofilmic awards. In addition, he was also a finalist in the Latin America Fotografia as well as Time Lightbox featuring his ongoing series, Lincoln Heights.
Graduated in Philosophy and Photography, he combines professional photography, teaching and own project production since the 90’s. Collaborator in national and international publications, his work is a research of “the bizarre” in the context of a sophisticated and alienated world by the techno-capitalism. The travel experience constitutes the nucleus of his reflection method and visual production, life experience as a creation itself.
ARXIU NACIONAL DE CATALUNYA
Mollet del Vallès (Barcelona), 1951. His main activity has been photography teaching and his personal work, that he started exhibiting in 1975.
He was cofounder of “Photographic Spring of Catalonia”. He has directed editorial projects linked to the world of photography. He was codirector of the Photography Project of the Olympic Games of Barcelona 92. He has given several workshops at different institutions and photography festivals.
He started his teaching activity in 1976, and from 1981 to 2012, he teached at IDEP Photography School in Barcelona and was its director.
Engaged in the visual arts from an early age, she exhibits an unusual, personal, minimalist, ironic and sometimes dark look in her photographs.
Sensitivity and delicacy are the backbone of his images, but his rebellious nature also seeks to stimulate the imagination of the viewer and to subvert the codes common to us in today's visual culture.
Arxiu Nacional de Catalunya presents in this second edition of LUMÍNIC festival of Sant Cugat, a selection of images coming from the different equity funds it conserves and that reflect different aspects of life and image of women between the end of the 19th century and the first third of the 20th century. All the images have been taken by professionals of photography “men”, including Gabriel Casas, Joan Bert, Ramon Claret, Josep Maria Sagarra i Plana, Frederic Cuyas, Francesc Boix or the Brangulí. This exhibition is a little sample of the iconic richness of our photographic heritage and the masculine look on the feminine universe in catalan photography history. As a novelty, this will be the first exhibition in which we will take the images out of the Archive, in a very different format and material from our exhibitions, where we seek more for the impact of the image than the value of the photographic object.
Xavier Millán initiates as a photographer in 1980 at Primer Plano Gallery in Barcelona. Later he developed professionally as a decorator and graphic designer of cinema and advertising. In recent years, he participates again actively in the contemporary photography scenario.
DANI CARCÍA SARABIA
Dani García Sarabia (Barcelona, 1978)
Talking about Dani García Sarabia is synonymus with showcasing a photographer seeking the most primitive essence of natural habitat. The images he captures with his artistic eye are full of contradictions. On one hand they seem paintings carefully drawn from its natural source, and on the other they contain an immense dramatism capable of taking us to almost unknown spaces within us. In his skilful hands the camera works extraordinarily to show different aspects of the same scene through light trickery and varying tones or even the absence of colour at all, everything thanks to the contrasts of the extreme climates he features. We can therefore say without fear that the scenes portrayed under his particular and special perspective often enclose a subtle irony or ambiguity that inspire different reflections and interpretations.
