"To collect photographs is to collect the world (...)
Any collection of photographs is an exercise in surrealist montage and the surrealist abbreviation of history."
Las Coleccionistas is a photography studio based in Barcelona set up in 2009 when María Revuelta and Núria del Moral decided to start making collaborative visual projects.
Las Coleccionistas works to explore new ways of expression and creativity in use of photography. We understand photography as a way of communication, but also as a way to help us find new meanings and alternative interpretations of our surroundings.
The aim of the studio is to create a coherent body of work both with self-commisioned projects and in collaboration with other companies, ad agencies, designers and creators.
Experimentation is at the core of the studio's practice. Las Coleccionistas leaves its mark on every aspect of the creative process. In addition to photography, we art direct shoots from initial concept to the designs and production of the set. We also expand our practice designing product collections of unique items in limited numbers to research new photography applications.
We had the privilege of working with companies such as Adidas, PepsiCo, Schweppes, Muji, Dockers, Evax&Tampax, Tanqueray, Smoking and many more.
And ad agencies such as DDB, DoubleYou, Dommo, Firma, Soon in Tokyo, SantaMarta, Twoelf, Viernes, Larsson Duprez, Carlitos y Patricia and more.
Lectures and talks
We take part in conferences and events, as well as giving lectures and workshops at design schools and communication universities. We love to share our way of working and offer insights into our universe and process.
