Originally from Cordoba, in southern Spain, this 28-year-old lived in Madrid, working for El Pais Sunday magazine, Spanish Marie Claire and Neo2, an underground Spanish magazine set up by graphic design group Ipsum Planet. He moved to London to study photography at the London College of Printing, but still keeps ties with Spain. Ideally, he would like to keep his work- load limited so he can enjoy his studies and the bright lights of the city, but, since arriving in Britain, Ubera Biedma has rarely stopped working. Vince Frost chose him to shoot the cover of the 1999/00 D&AD Annual and says: ‘He is very talented. His portraits of people are incredibly intimate and natural. His work looks effortless.’ His interests range from club culture to photojournalism and his favourite subjects are ‘junkies, gays and prostitutes’. He says American photographer Robert Frank is an inspiration and wants to develop his work into ‘concept-driven’ photography.
