(Terrassa, 1935)

“Shooting from the heart”

In 2012 the first Spanish female photographer, Joana Biarnés, made a great comeback after having been forgotten for more than 30 years.

A valuable archive that contained a large number of high quality images was discovered. Her moment of glory finally arrived. Shooting from the heart is a selection of representative photos of the different areas in which she worked.

Joana Biarnés attended to her work with great tenacity and perseverance and managed to survive in a male-dominated world. Moreover, she worked with great honesty and courage and developed unique closeness and connectedness with the people who appeared in her photos.
