Born in Barcelona in 1986, Laia Abril first studied journalism at university, before moving to New York and focusing on photography. Today she is developing a multidisciplinary work – taking the form of installations, books, web documents or even films – but also a committed one, exploring intimate themes such as sexuality, eating disorders or even gender and its inequalities. Since 2016, she has been working on a long-term project, entitled A History of Misogyny. A poignant series divided into chapters “On Abortion”, “On Rape” and “On Mass Hysteria”. Her works have been exhibited internationally – at the Rencontres d’Arles (2016), at PhotoIreland (2018), or at the Finnish Museum of Photography (Helsinki, 2019), and have received numerous distinctions: the Madame Figaro Photo Prize, the Foam Paul Huf Award, the Aperture/Paris Photo Book Prize… They have also become part of public and private collections (Musée de l’Élysée, FRAC Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, FotoColectania, and, in 2021, the Centre Pompidou).
