Artist

Samuel Aranda


(Sta. Coloma de Gramenet, 1979 - )

By using documentary photography, Samuel Aranda has portrayed political and social realities across the world, for media such as The New York Times, Le Monde and National Geographic. Focused mainly on the Middle East and Africa, he has given visibility to themes such as the Ebola pandemic, the Arab revolutions, the refugee crisis or the conflict between Israel and Palestine. In Spain, he has also dealt with themes such as the social impact of the economic crisis with images that generated a big debate, as well as the Catalan independence movement and the many political events which it led to. He is always aware of the impact these events have on people and his photographs show, in great detail, extreme situations in which the photographer bears witness to the best and worst in human beings.
