I’m a Finnish novelist, literary translator and literary scholar. I work at the intersection of auto-fictional writing, theory and translation. For me writing is a way of being in the world. I’m currently working on a novel on love and sexuality in the era of modern technologies. In addition to this, I’m also finishing my PhD in Comparative Literature and Gender Studies at the University of Paris 8 and the University of Turku.
Born in 1988 in Guadalajara, Mexico. Cristóbal Ascencio is a Mexican photographer. He studies a degree in Audiovisual Media and Publicity from the Jalisco CAAV (2012) and a Master’s Degree in Contemporary Photography and Project Management from the EFTI School in Madrid (2022).
His work focuses on the relationship that exists between images and memory and how we construct different identities and realities from this correspondence. His practice expands to new forms of imagery such as virtual reality, data manipulation, and photogrammetry.
His work Las flores mueren dos veces has been selected for exhibition at the 2022 Getxo Photo Festival, the Encontros Dona Imagem 2022 festival in Braga, the Panoramic festival in Barcelona and the Bfoto festival in Barbastre. It has been included in the list Ones to watch 2022 by the British Journal of Photography and in the list 100 of Photo Vogue’s The Next Great Fashion Image Makers.
