Reality Through the Colors and Brushes: Ouka Leele

Bárbara Allende Gil de Biedma a.k.a Ouka Leele was born in Madrid, Spain in 1957. She wanted to be a painter but discovered photography as another medium of looking at figurative work. 

At a unique moment in Spanish history in the aftermath of Franco’s death, she invented a fresh and original way of looking at images. With great ease, she became a part of the nation’s “movida” movement and defined a contemporary approach to seduction located between provocation and playing with the concept of beauty. She has never considered photography to be merely a tool to render reality visible. Rather, she uses it as an instrument to impose her point of view through both intimacy and distance.
