Arguiñe Escandón (Bilbao, 1979) focuses her attention on psychological and sociological aspects, as well as on exploring emotional bonds. Working on the thin line between fiction and reality, she builds in her photographs an imaginary wrapped in mysterious atmospheres. 

In 2020, her work was shortlisted for the Prix Elysée and the Galicia Contemporary Photography Award. She  also was a winner of the Fine Arts and Photography grant given by the Spanish Ministry of Culture and nominated at the Swiss Design Awards, amongst other recognitions.

She has exhibited in places such as Wilde Gallery (Geneva), Images Vevey, Verzasca Photo (Switzerland), Galería C19 (Ibiza), Galería Serendipia, Galería OTR (Madrid) and others.

Her book “Aya” published by RM (in conjunction with Yann Gross) has been recognized as one of the best books of 2020 by institutions such as PhotoEspaña or the Lucie Foundation (NY).

Prominent media like Aperture Magazine, El País, Fisheye, Gup, Le Temps, Liberation, Vogue Italia and Vistprojects have published her work.
