Guillem Valle (Barcelona 1983):

I became interested in documentary photography  when I travelled to Sarajevo at the age of 14 in an Exchange Student program.

Since then, I have worked for uncountable newspapers and magazines around the world, always maintaining my own photographic agenda.

I based myself in Bangkok in 2010 and started covering Southeast Asia for several international media such as The New York Times, The Guardian or The Wall Street Journal among others. However , I wasn't limited to Asia. I also covered Africa and the Middle East including some chapters of the Arab Spring.

Little by little I started shifting my carrier towards filmmaking.

In 2016 I studied cinema direction at ESCAC film school in Terrassa and I now live in Barcelona and work as fillmaker.

I also practice Aikido and love dogs.
