Ignacio Pereira

David Binder
Ignacio Pereira (b. 1979) has always been surrounded by art. His great-grandfather Fernando Labrada was the President of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando in Rome and had a great influence on his perception of space and light.

He began a degree in business but quickly changed direction and entered into the Official School of Interior Architecture in Madrid. During his studies, he began working in different media agencies until 2005 when he started to develop his own project, founding the Coronel Truman agency. It was during this period that he came into contact with photography, thus developing a profound interest in aesthetics.

In 2018, his personal project entitled KENOPSIA, is awarded with the Photo España prize for the best visual story.

Obsessed with portraying isolation in impossible spaces, he presents us with iconic places where the sole survivor provides the scale and personality of each snapshot.
