Irene Zottola

As a social educator, uses the image as an educational tool with groups in vulnerable situations.

As a creator, she explores the limits of analog photography in a self-taught way to express her particular world where aspects such as dreams, nature, sexuality, memory, and identity are present in her images, often accompanied by text.

An apprentice from the Slow Photo collective, her work has been exhibited at fairs, festivals in Barcelona, Madrid, and Morocco, among others.
In 2019 she wins the scholarship for the Master of Author photo at the Center for Contemporary Photography. In 2020 she participated in the fifth edition of the Action for Art platform, curated by Gloria Oyarzábal, and in the group exhibition 20Artistas 20 Cuerpos at the Museum of Reproductions of Bilbao.

Winner of the V Edition of the Fotocanal Contest organized by the Community of Madrid, she has published her first photobook with Ediciones Anómalas: Ícaro.
