Bio

Juan de Sande lives and works in Madrid. He is a photographer, although he first started with painting. He recently has also experimented in the field of sculpture. His photographic production is made up of scheduled series, usually large-format. The work reflects on image and artifice, reality and contemporary creation, absence and human presence, through architecture, nature, and, more recently, interior spaces. Music, literature, painting, and sculpture, very present in his life, also feed his creative work. His photos are the result of a long, complex, and systematic process of image construction in the studio, using digital techniques applied to the original photography, which he obtains with medium and large format analog cameras.
He began his exhibition career at the end of the 90s, participating since then in some of the most prestigious photography and visual arts exhibitions and competitions in Spain, such as the Pilar Citoler, L’Oreal, Purificación García or AENA awards, the Endesa, Generación scholarships 2000 by Caja Madrid and the PhotoEspaña festival. He has received commissions for photo books or photography magazines, such as Matador, and his work has been present in different editions of fairs such as ARCOMadrid, MadridFoto, ParisPhoto, PhotoMiami, or Pulse Miami, among others.
His work is part of important public and private Spanish collections, such as the Juan March Foundation, the Alcobendas Collection, the Community of Madrid, the Santander Museum of Fine Arts, the Masaveu Collection, or the Club Matador Collection, as well as private collections. His work is included in the Dictionary of Spanish Photographers, published in 2014 by the Ministry of Education, Culture, and Sports, in addition to other publications and catalogs.
