In the mid-1990s, Jaume de Laiguana (Barcelona 1966) left behind his years as an art director to launch a career as a photographer, working on major advertising campaigns. He began producing commercials and music videos, quickly gaining considerable national and international recognition. Over the course of his career, he has received countless accolades, including prestigious prizes for advertising and photography and several nominations for Latin MTV and Grammy awards. Moreover, his multi-disciplinary spirit has also led him to produce and direct stage shows for the world tours of major stars from the music world and to produce several documentaries.
Jaume de Laiguana has also published a number of books of photographs, all marked, not only by his personal aesthetic vision, but also by protest against social conditions. The proceeds from these publications have gone to different causes, from the fight against Aids to environmental conservation and grants for new photographers.
