Meet the talents from Capa Center:
Bernardita Morello started with photography in her country, Argentina, where she studied and worked in fashion and press.

In 2016 she published her first photo book, eden, thanks to the Fiebre Dummy Award. Since 2010 she lives in Madrid, alternating her work as a photographer with her personal projects.
Ire Lenes is a documentary photographer from Madrid, where she lives and works. She initiated studies of photography on her own until entering the International School of Alcobendas PhotoEspaña PIC.A from 2013 to 2020, where she gained the Certificate in Advanced Study in Documentary Photography, Contemporary Landscape Photography and in Video Capture and Editing. In 2017, her personal connection with Lithuania led her to embark on a long-term project, the analysis of ethnic minorities in the Baltic States and the understanding of the particular situation in each country, a trilogy approached from a sociological perspective and materialized through visual narrative.
