León, Spain, 1981.
Lives and works in Madrid.
Laiz has a degree in Media Studies from the Universidad Pontificia of Salamanca. Thanks to support from museums and foundations –such as the Fundación Cerezales, Magnum Foundation, Ideas Tap and the MUSAC, among others– he has been able to focus his photographic projects on frequently neglected subjects. His photographs have been published in Forbes, Washington Post, National Geographic and New York Times.
Documentary photography is a tool Laiz uses to experiment with new narratives related to those things that fascinate and concern him, or those that he needs to understand. He is co-founder of ANHUA, an NGO that aims to produce independent documentary essays and in this manner contribute to making positive social change by means of images.
He presented El Cazador project at the Galería Freijo, during Apertura, in September 2016.
