Isabel Muñoz has been awarded with the National Photography Prize 2016 by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport an award endowed with 30,000 euros.
The jury highlighted "her artistic career, which combines the social commitment and the pursuit of beauty, delving into issues like the body, the ritual or the cultural diversity. With the uniqueness of her use of a traditional technique applied to a contemporary language, knower of her craft, her works reflect a look in permanent search."
In N2 we want to share the joy of seeing how the wonderful work of our dear Isabel Muñoz is recognized. We have had the honor of being the first gallery to exhibit Muñoz in Barcelona (2013) and we will also be the first gallery to take her work to a fair in Miami (Context Art Miami, from November 29th to December 4th).
This well-deserved award is added to a long list of recognitions obtained by Isabel Muñoz in the course of her artistic trajectory: she has won the World Press Photo award in 1999 (in the category Art & Entertainment) and 2004 (in the category Portraits) was Photography Award of the Community of Madrid in 2006 and PHotoEspaña Prize in 2009. She also received the Medal of Merit in Fine Arts in 2009.
Her work is part of collections such as the Maison Europeenne de la Photographie (Paris) and the New Museum in New York, among others.
