Irene Vilà Capafons (Gavà, 1997)

I'm a freelance photojournalist based in Barcelona.

After finishing my degree in Journalism in Barcelona, I studied a postgraduate degree in Photojournalism at the Autonomous University of Barcelona.

I've worked for Agencia EFE as a camerawoman for a year. Now, I work as a freelance for El Nacional, and on long-term projects, too. My work has been published in El País, La Vanguardia, El Periódico, Diari ARA, El Nacional, 7K Zazpika, El Diario de Ibiza, Gara, EFE, TV3, betevé, or Núvol among others.

I'm interested in human stories, especially about women's rights, and global climate change. I'm always looking for different ways to tell people's stories from a close, down-to-earth perspective.
