Arnau Bach was self-taught in photography until winning a fellowship to attend the photojournalism program at Barcelona University (UAB).

After six years photographing daily news for Spanish newspapers, he decided to start producing his personal work as a freelance photographer. The result of this new stage in his career is “SUBURBIA”, an essay about daily life in the Paris suburbs that began in 2006 and was completed in 2012.

His work has received international recognition. Bach was awarded the Pierre & Alexandra Boulat Grant, the Community Awareness Award of the International Picture of the Year (POYI), the Kolga Tbilisi Award and was a finalist in the Leica Oskar Barnack Award and LUMIX Festival for Young Photojournalism.

Bach’s work had been published in several international magazines such as The Sunday TimesThe New YorkerEl País SemanalThe New York TimesStern and Internazionale.

His work has also been exhibited worldwide at the Tokyo International Photography Festival, Noorderlicht Photo Festival (Netherlands), GuatePhoto (Guatemala), United Photo Industries Gallery (New York), Cosmos Gallery (París), Bursa Photo Festival (Turkey) and DOCField Festival (Barcelona), among others.

Arnau Bach is currently based between Paris and Barcelona. He is mentored by Christopher Morris.
