Carla Ballester, a fourth-year student on the Bachelor’s Degree in Design, presents NOTAVANDAL, a collection of portraits and landscape photographs that she has created over the last two years, where the photographer journeys through her growth from the first photograph, created on 3 August 2017 in Llavaneres, Catalonia, up to her last piece, produced on 30 January 2019, in Varanasi, India. A collection of images in which the viewer can see a year of evolution and learning, in which the photographer has begun a metamorphosis that continues to evolve.
A combination of perfectly landscapes and portraits that are perfectly combined but that also give rise to freely-interpreted introspection.
The images were taken from a moving car, on an ordinary beach, in the sea, in family homes and in trendy bars in Barcelona, capturing the landscape of the Mediterranean coastline and photographs of everyday life. They are fleeting images, that escape from view and that are also scratched by the artist, intensifying this momentary aspect.
