Lua Ribeira

Stemming from her own heritage as Galician, Ribeira’s work deals with dynamics of oppression and the mechanisms of exclusion implied by dominant culture. Her practice is characterised by its collaborative nature, extensive research and an immersive approach to her subject matter. She is interested in using the photographic medium as a means to create encounters that establish relationships and question structural separations between people. Ribeira was born in Galicia (Spain) in 1986 and currently lives in Bristol, UK. She graduated in Documentary Photography from the University of South Wales in 2016 and since then she has continued her academic engagement as a guest lecturer at various universities. Ribeira recently attained a full membership of Magnum Photos.
