Irma Oltra

Dyslexic from birth, Irma never felt very comfortable expressing herself with words and chose to express herself through other languages. Starting with salsa dancing at age 4, she progressed to a professional level, but left it behind her at 20 to return to Barcelona. There she began her studies of photography, a way of speaking where words and letters are not necessary and the camera becomes a part of my body. These images are part of a project called "menja'm la fruita" or "eat my fruit". Irma also explores other arts such as improvisation, Argentinian tango, singing and aerial dancing.
