Jaume Llorens was born in Porqueres, near Girona, Catalonia, in 1966. Fond of photography since he was a teenager. In 2014, he took part in his first collective exhibition. The most notable ones have been the LensCulture group exhibition at Photo London 2023, a solo show at the Fundació Valvi in Girona in 2022, another solo exhibition at the Festival Mirades in Torroella de Montgrí in 2021, and a collective at the Valid Foto Gallery in Barcelona (OFNI Project, 2019). Among his awards, he received the Top Pick at LensCulture Critics' Choice 2023, the Top 50 at Photolucida Critical Mass 2023, the 3rd place (singles) at the LensCulture Black & White Awards 2022, the selection of his portfolio 'Deep Inside' at the Barcelona International Photography Awards, BIPA, 2019, and the 3rd prize in the VI National Photography Competition Canson Infinity (Spain).
My work is the result of moments of silence observing nature and the surrounding landscape. An intimate and contemplative approach to celebrate its beauty or the magic it gives us. An attempt to convey the emotional or aesthetic impact that this contact provokes; or sometimes to reflect more or less explicitly my own emotional landscape. I feel comfortable with simple, sometimes very minimal images that suggest rather than explain. And infinitely happy when someone recognises traces of poetry in my photographs.
