About me
Naroa Pérez Iguaran (b.1978) Naroa is a photographer researching on tactile nostalgia through liquid emulsion technique. She was born in Barcelona. She graduated in Pedagogy at UPV/EHU. Studied Photography at Amaiur Photography School based in San Sebastian. Worked as a freelance and studio photographer. Came back to the darkroom at Arteleku– a contemporary art institution. Where she repurposed the darkroom space and organised some photography workshops there. This brought her to Xavier Ribas who, lecturer at the Brighton University, encouraged her to study in London. Where she graduates in Photography at the London College of Communication, UAL. The Liquid emulsion is a workshop she got intrigued by at the university due to its unpredictable nature and the process’ relation to chance. Since mid-2017, this technique has transformed for her into photographic-tactile objects. Accompanied by research on the sense of touch and nostalgia in the visual arts. Her work is already at the Victorian and Albert Museum library in London, and Bodleian Libraries Weston Library Rare books collection in Oxford. She likes working in the field as a photography technician, both in digital and analogue. Her practice locates her usually in the darkroom. Both, black and white (Liquid emulsion technique) and colour analogue printing. Working on the creative process. Dealing with mistake, chance and repetition. Playing with uncertainty.
