Sabela Eiriz


Fine art photographer based in Barcelona.
Her work joins subjective themes with scientific and medical studies but in a poetic point of view.
She is inspired by personal concerns as self-recognition, the relationship with the others and the
loss and death. She expresses herself through photography and text, but she also works with
video and paint when the projects demand it.

She was born in the wet and cold town of Lugo (Galicia, Spain) where she has become interested in

producer & film editor (Uvecé, short film) and director & post-producer of commercial videos for

of the International Film Festival of San Sebastián in 2012 and 2013, and she also was part of the
project Gesamt (Lars Von Trier & Jenle Hallund, 2012).
