Susana Sanromán is a Galician photographer who has made London her home. Since completing her studies in photography at the London College of Communication, she has been involved in a number of exhibitions both as an artist and a curator. Her work displays intimacy and delicately-woven subtleties, and she is considered part of a group of artists known as the Generation of 2008. In 2009 she published the photographic essay ‘Women looking at women: the female gaze’.
Originally from Madrid, photographer Pablo Conejo has lived in London since 2004. His work has been exhibited in London and published on the blog of prestigious magazine TIME: LightBox. His earlier work focused mainly on urban landscapes and architecture, but in 2013 he surprised us with his project ‘Everyday People’. He took on the challenge of creating a portrait of anybody who wanted to be photographed, posting an advert for subjects on a popular classified ads website in London. One of the portraits from this project has been selected for the KLPA13 Exhibition in the Galeri Petronas in Kuala Lumpur’s Twin Towers.
The Alicante-born artist Cristina de Middel has earned herself a place on the international stage thanks to her strong photographic portfolio. Her work has gained recognition in prestigious awards, and she is currently one of the finalists in the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize 2013.
The economic crisis has hit and continues to affect commercial areas in cities with businesses forced to close on a daily basis. No area is immune, not even those located in close proximity to a city centre’s historic business district. Both traditional and new businesses are suffering during this economic slowdown.
