Cristóbal Pereira (Lima, 1986) is a photographer living in Berlin. Coming out from humanities at the Universidad Católica in Peru, he decides to pursue photography studies at the Institut d’Estudis Fotográfics in Barcelona. There he spent ten years, in which he developed a tendency to include light (and therefore shadow) as an important character in his images. Writer John Z. Komurki describes “Barcelona is light, above all. Many types of light” in a text about the photographer’s work.

Lately Cristóbal’s work has focused on crafting a poetic document about the cities. These serve as a mirror of the artist’s insights. Both wanderer and city entwine into a dialogue about how strange it is to be anything at all.
