Jesús Ubera Biedma (Spain, 1971)
Audiovisual artist and teacher.
In 2000 he completed his academic training in photography at the London College of Printing (UK) and in 2009 he completed an MA in Photography at the London College of Communication (UK). He currently teaches at the European Institute of Design, where he has been teaching since 2019.
He has received awards such as "Editorial Photographer of the Year" by Creative Review magazine or "Upcoming photographer" by Design Week magazine in London.
In 2002 his solo exhibition Ventanas+espejos+puertas took place at Oliva Arauna Gallery in Madrid, Spain.
In 2019 he presented his photographic project Estar-Ahora during the Accessibility Seminars at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (MNCARS) in Madrid, Spain.
In 2020 he produced the series Tiempo Detenido, a photographic series produced in Madrid in March 2020, in the context of the quarantine confinement due to the SARS CoV-2 virus pandemic known as COVID 19, conceived as a reflection on the collective understood as the sum of individuals and the way in which the absence of these individuals in those spaces of socialisation in which we find ourselves, learn, grow or take care of ourselves, cries out with even greater force, our presence in the world and the empty city evidences and claims our presence. This project was published in El País in the opinion section, in the "exhibition" section. Each photograph was published day by day, exposing in the form of a record, document or opinion the current situation of confinement that we are living. This series, created in the development of this global pandemic, shows spaces destined for transit, contact and social grouping, now empty.
