Marta Fàbregas i Aragall 

 

Marta Fàbregas (Barcelona, 1974) is an artist, activist and photographer formed at the Institute of Photographic Studies of Catalonia. Fàbregas has articulated her feminist practice transversally in her works as well as in her daily life.
Anything that has to do with image is part of her DNA. She has always felt passionate about the visual language, and that’s why she chose to devote herself to photography, her passion, which allows her to combine both her artistic and entrepreneurial sides. Her main talent is knowing how to capture, in a fast and natural way, the beauty in the things that surround her. That’s where the power of her work comes from.
Undoubtedly, empathy, implication and creativity are what gives every project in which she engages a power and a character that makes it special and unique.
She was born in Barcelona on April 12th, 1974, and studied Photography at IEFC (Institut d’Estudis Fotogràfics de Catalunya).
She worked in several photo studios in Barcelona such as Ferran Freixa’s and, in 1998, co-founded
Estudi La Fotogràfica with the also photographer Marc Vidal.
From then on, she has been mainly devoted to her studio, where she developed personal and artistic work, along with commissions from museums, businesses, and private clients. She also teaches classes, workshops and seminars.

She works actively for the SETBA Foundation, with whom she carries out artistic activities and workshops for groups at risk of social exclusion, of which the recent photography workshop carried out with the women of the Brians 1 Penitentiary Center stands out, which has its own publication. In the last year, she has also exhibited at the Frederic Marès Museum in Barcelona, ​​as well as at the Palau Robert in Barcelona within the Kronos Festival. Together with Pigment Gallery she has participated in international fairs.
Her work is part of the private collection of the Lluis Bassat Foundation and the Artemizia Foundation.
She co-directed the first edition of  the photography festival “Lumínic”, which took place in Sant Cugat during the spring of 2019.
She is currently the President of a women’s entrepreneurs’ network, Xarxa de Dones Emprenedores de Sant Cugat (XDESC), in the city where she currently lives.

As well as that, she has worked in several Other Projects.
