-> Latest: Kickflip (Prototype 0.1.0) at Adolescencia Programada. Curated by Daniel Silvo.

Ignacio Navas (b. 1989, Tudela, Spain) is a photographer based in Madrid.

In his work he researches how political, economic and social structures are made present and shape our everyday affaires. In his latest projects he is exploring new interactive paths for the medium by creating non fictional photography-based videogames.

His images and publications have been presented as part of solo and collective exhibitions in Spain, England, Guatemala and Colombia. In 2022 he was nominated by PhotoEspaña to become part of the Futures platform. His works feature in Exit, ABC Cultural and Clavoardiendo Magazine, amongst others.

Along with seven other photographers he currently runs El Local, a new independent space for photography in Madrid.
