Clara Miquel
Photographer

Clara Miquel is a Paris-based Chilean photographer and cultural manager. In her work, she delves into the captivating realm of girlhood survival through her lens. Her photographs serve as witnesses to the myriad challenges women face—from navigating relationships with men, to the complexities of adulthood, to trying to heal trauma, and even the spectrum of reproductive choices, including the delicate dance of avoiding pregnancy and the choice of abortion.

Clara uses her lens to exorcise her own experiences, weaving personal resilience into the visual narratives she creates. Most of her pictures are taken with point-and-shoot cameras, a deliberate choice to be as discreet and non-invasive as possible, allowing the authenticity of the moments to unfold naturally.

As a storyteller, she attempts to illuminate the profound bonds of sisterhood. Her photographs capture moments between her closest friends, showcasing the collective strength of women and the joyous embrace of rituals. Creating spaces where individuals can play, feel safe, and freely express themselves, Clara’s camera chronicles simple stories of resilience and unity that unfold within these personal and shared experiences.
