Ana Santos is a spanish photographer and digital retoucher based in Madrid. She is interested in questioning and reflecting on emotional limits as well as the indistinct boundaries and multiple polarities that delimit the reality of the human being in the environment he inhabits through aesthetic photographic experiences.
Communication and a humanistic approach, a focus on colour, texture, ambiguity and human relationships of various kinds forms has always been the base of her practice, while the narrative elements within the work often remain open and ambiguous.
