Opening of the exhibition by Leticia Díaz de la Morena

Nobody is Normal Up Close

Venue: La Alhóndiga

Nobody is normal up close, not even the artists and models from whom we tend to demand a perfection which, like everybody else, they do not own. Leticia Díaz de la Morena, with her photographic exhibition De cerca nadie es normal ('Nobody is Normal Up Close'), invites us to look at her subjects in the eyes, at their skin, at their internal worlds.

From childhood, Díaz de la Morena was attracted to drawing and painting. It was when she was given her first camera that she discovered she could paint with no tools other than light. She learned then that her place was behind that camera, watching and capturing what was happening on the other side of the lens. Years later she studied a professional degree in Image and she did her internship on set at Hachette Filipacchi Media (now Hearst). It was there an opportunity arose that she jumped at; to work as an assistant to Spanish photographers such as Diego Lafuente, Joaquín Calle and Bernardo Doral. As a freelance photographer, celebrities such as Dani Martín, Blanca Suarez and Vigo Mortensen have posed for her. Over her 15 years in the profession, firms such as Samsung, Rochas, H&M, Guerlain and Primark have trusted her professionalism and her unique understanding of photography. She has also shot the covers of Spain’s most influential magazines including Harper's Bazaar, Telva, Elle and Nylon.

She will be accompanied at the exhibition opening by Juan Carlos Monroy, Councillor of Culture for Segovia City Council; Antonio Graell, photographer, and Sheila Cremaschi, Hay Festival Segovia Director and one of Forbes’ 75 Latin women to follow in 2024.
