Alicia Rius

Girona, Spain

Ever since her childhood, Alicia Rius has had a fascination with cameras. However, when it came to choosing a degree, she decided to study advertising, and now lives and works in Amsterdam as a publicist. As years passed, Alicia felt deep down that her artistic spirit was not completely satisfied, and that she needed another way to channel her creativity. The solution arrived in the Spring of 2010 when she was given a digital SLR camera as a gift. An autodidact, she studied photography using YouTube tutorials. Now, with her fascination with still life, she slips off into the darkness of abandoned places, hoping to uncover their secrets, her aim to rescue them from the dust, show their beauty, and turn them back into the protagonists in a photographic story.
