Marta Lallana García is originally from Zaragoza, in the north of Spain. Having graduated from the Art School of Zaragoza, she moved to Barcelona to study Cinema at the Pompeu Fabra University. While at UPF, she developed a strong passion for visual arts as photography and film. Inspired by travelling around she aims to take naturalistic images that capture the texture and atmosphere of a place and its people.
On the basis of her existing work, she was selected among 5.000 aspiring photographers to compete in the Sky Arts Master of Photography contest, which has been aired across European television. She was one of the three finalist and her work was supervised by prestigious photographers such as Alex Webb, Bruce Gilden or David Lachapelle.
Since spring of 2016 she has focused on the production, direction and scriptwritting of her debut feature film "Ojos Negros", produced by Nanouk Films (Alcaldessa, Dead Slow Ahead) and distributed by Filmin, premiered in 2019. Since spring of 2016 till 2019 she has focused on the direction and scriptwritting of her debut feature film "Ojos Negros", produced by Nanouk Films, distributed by Filmin, premiered in cinemas in july 2019. It Won the Biznaga de Plata price for the Best Spanish Film in the Film Festival of Málaga, and was in the international competition inside the Official Section of BAFICI (Buenos Aires) among more than 20 selections. It was nominated to Gaudí Awards and Feroz Awards.
She combines filmaking with photography as she can not imagine one without another. While shooting cinema she is thinking in creating images with a strong narrative per se and while she is making photographs she is influenced in captivating more than an image, a cinematographic atmosphere.
She is enthusiastic about expanding the depth and reach of photography and film, so would love to collaborate with others on interesting projects and exhibit her work. If you have any ideas or would like to know more, please get in touch!
