Valencia, 1989

Gala Font de Mora studied photography at the School of Arts and Design in Valencia, following her studies with subsequent training at Espai d'art Fotogràfic, at Centre Cívic Pati Llimona with David Salcedo and at CASA, a pedagogical proposal taught by Ricardo Cases and Pablo Casino.

She has worked as a photographer at Railowsky bookstore and photo gallery since 2011, and during her stay in Barcelona, she spent over a year working for the Foto Colectania Foundation. For three consecutive years, she was part of the Utopia Markets Photo team as event coordinator and photographer.

She has been selected by the jury, specifically by Ihiro Hayami (director T3- Tokyo International Photography Festival, Japan) with a special distinction in LensCulture's Street Photography Awards 2020 with her project "Week-End" which was mentioned in The Guardian and The Washington Post.

She collaborated with MAKMA, visual arts and contemporary culture magazine, making photographic reports of their cultural interviews, this last year even publishing a selection from her project ‘Week-End’ in the second special printed feature of the magazine and featuring on its cover.
Her latest work was also published in LF Magazine and IN-PUBLIC.

Gala currently lives in Valencia, dividing her time between professional architectural work and personal projects.
Her photography has evolved in recent years, focusing on research in the world of cinema. The ‘Week-End’ project was her first contact with this field, seeking to portray the atmosphere of Spanish drive-in cinemas.
Her intention is to continue capturing these spaces, which now revive their lost glory. At the same time, Gala wants to expand her vision to summer cinemas, as well as conventional cinemas, and show their struggle to survive the current situation we find ourselves in.
