Marta Corada is a photographer and artist whose documentary work in blurs the boundaries between storytelling and fact. Her constructed images are based on documentary photographs of real situations, which are later manipulated by the artist. This approach frees photography from restrictions of the single exposure, using enduring compositional methods to select characters and visual elements that all existed in the place that we see them, just not all at the same time. In this way she produces highly considered images from documentary photographs.

No models or actors are used, there is no direction of the action or manipulation of the scenes. Post Memories represents documented real moments taken out of time to create scenes that never existed, yet nothing has been added or invented. This contradiction conjures stories behind each individual, examining the way we perform and interact with each other in different environments, cultures and communities. Our memories and perception are challenged so to reassess what we consider real.

The artist has worked on Post Memories in different countries, including China, Spain and the UK.

 

Marta Corada lives and works in London. Originally from La Rioja, Spain, she studied Fine Art & Photography at the Universities of Salamanca & Barcelona, and has had numerous international exhibitions, including Galeria Spectrum Sotos in Zaragoza and H2O in Barcelona; Pantocrator Gallery in Shanghai; James Freeman Gallery in London. Her work was also included in the National Open Art (NOA) Competition 2014 show at Somerset House, London.

In 2014 Marta was awarded with the Ward Thomas Photography Award by NOA, and her work was selected to take part in the International Photography festival Paraty em foco, Brazil. Marta has been on the last edition of The Other Art fair 2015 in London and her work has been recently featured by Life Framer and will take place on their next exhibition at Oberkampf gallery in Paris and Menier Gallery in London, It will also be  included on their second book Life framer Vol.2
