Laura Andalou travels the world to photograph and raise awareness of conflict areas. In her work she shows cultural habits that have diminished or, on the contrary, have been amplified by Western interference. She works in a romantic style using special types of film and digital post-processing. Through these techniques, she makes it possible that the Kenyan Masai find themselves surrounded by a pink landscape. She uses these pastel colours to create a melancholic and nostalgic atmosphere that refers back to a peaceful past. But at the same time there are hints to the harsh reality of the conflict that you find in these areas in the present. It is up to the viewer to remain immersed in the dream or to investigate what other reality is hidden behind the image.
