Ana Núñez Rodríguez

I am a research-based photographer living and working between Spain and Colombia. In my work I delve into the politics of identity, connecting my own experience of navigating between both cultural realities with other voices. Through the use of images I establish new forms of collaboration and knowledge production that reveal forgotten colonial legacies and question the impacts of collective memory and cultural heritage on identity.
