Andrea Torres Balaguer Art Exhibition Finissage.

Andrea Torres Balaguer graduated with a degree Fine Arts from the University of Barcelona; an education that formed her multidisciplinary style to portraiture and photography. The fashion photographer’s work is influenced not only by the combination of rich tradition and brilliant modernity of her native Barcelona, but also by dreams and surrealism, exploring the relationship between femininity and nature through the symbolism and dream transcription technique. Inspired by references to psychoanalysis theory and magic realism, her pictures experiment with the conscious subconscious. Thinking about the scene-action concept, she creates pictures that suggest stories and invites the spectator to interpret them, searching to experiment with the boundaries between reality and fiction. Paired with her deep understanding of storytelling and fashion, Andrea Torres probes the boundaries of traditional portraiture. Her distinct aesthetic beckons the viewer to explore themes of memory, identity, and the line between the personal and impersonal; oneself and the other.
