Pictas Focus: Interview with the artist
Talking with Merche Llobera
Happy Wednesday! And welcome to another appointment with our Interview with the artist.
Today our amazing guest is Merche Llobera, a stunning underwater and wildlife photographer.
Before we start diving (pun intended) into her work, here are her social links. Take a look and be prepared to be amazed by what you will see.
We are also happy to share with you an amazing webinar she made for Pictas. We hope you will enjoy watching it as much as we did.
Q: Good morning Merche, it’s such a pleasure to have you here today. Would you please introduce yourself so we can all know a little more about you?
A: Hey everyone! It’s a pleasure to be here! Well, I can start by saying that I’m passionate about the animal world and a natural-born adventurer. I have travelled the globe to share oceans and land with wild animals, capturing them in my photographs in a special and unique way.
I’m proud to say that my work has been published in several magazines and recognized in international competitions, where I have received awards and honourable mentions, such as Montphoto, Nature in focus, Siena Awards, and 8th 35 Awards, among others. Moreover, I was part of the Spanish team for the 2023 World Photographic Cup, being awarded as “Best of the Nation”.
In 2022, I worked as a mentor for the "Wildlife Photography" program at AFRISOS (African School of Storytelling) in Tanzania. A beautiful initiative that aims to create African photographers who can tell the stories of their continent.
I have also collaborated with 14 women photographers in the inaugural volume of the MOTHER magazine, where they seek to highlight the significance of nature and animals in our lives.
